My wife is from Neerpelt, Belgium and we come there every September for a couple of weeks. Anyone interested in trading for some Texas fossils or maybe sharing hunt sites in the area? I’d gladly return the favor for anyone visiting the Dallas area. We mostly find Arrowheads, Mosasaur, Shark, Gastropods, Xiphactinus,Ammonites, Baculite and Echinoids in our area. Thanks!

Neerpelt, probably best to head to the chalk pits,like Enci in Maastricht. There are some more LINK but well out of my radius. So it's all i got.

Not very close to Neerpelt but you can hunt on the beaches of Maasvlakte 2 (Rotterdam area) or Zandmotor (The Hague area) if you are interested in Pleistocene. If lucky you can find mammoth bones or teeth or even holocene bone or flint artefacts.

Hi Patrick,

On saturday the 1st of september you can join a field trip to the scrap heaps of coal mines in Brunssum: LINK

On the 26th you can join a trip to a gravel pit near Stein: LINK

To enter the ENCI-quarry, you can also contact the regional departement of the Dutch geological society, which also arranges both of the above mentioned field trips.

For trading, it might be a good idea to post some pictures. I can't imagine none of the members of this forum are interested.
