Workers make surprise fossil find at Brisbane construction site

Construction workers in Brisbane have unearthed animal and plant fossils believed to be about 50 million years old.

The fossils were contained in a layer of oil shale more than 15 metres underground at Geebung on Brisbane's northside.

The surprise discovery was brought to the surface by a piling rig last month during building excavation works.

Project engineers have been talking to experts from the Queensland Museum, who say the fossils are those of ancient crocodiles, fish, freshwater shells and plants.

Academics say the suburban site was completely unknown to them.
