Using cutting edge laser scanning technology and advanced software,Palcoprep recreated a three dimensional life size skull from the flattened and crushed fossil remains of a 200 million year old marine reptile called an  “Icthyosaur”  . The skull alone is nearly 14 feet long! This was the largest marine reptile that ever lived and rivaled the blue whale in size!

St. Victor Provincial Park- Petroglyph Replication
One of the most exciting jobs Palcoprep has been involved in was the replication of a native “Petroglyph” rock art site in southern Saskatchewan. The rock was in danger of collapsing at anytime. Our job was to replicate the art work before this happened and the petroglyphs were lost. 60 ft down from the edge, this was a most exhilarating project!

After removal of the mold we were delighted to find a perfect replica of  “The Hunter” a  previously unknown petroglyph uncovered during site preparation!
