      Shew said the most famous fossil-collecting location nearby is the PotashCorp mine (formerly known as the Lee Creek mine) in Beaufort. Its purpose is to mine for phosphate, but its formations are rich in marine fossils including molluscs, gastropods, coral, whale bones and the N.C. state fossil — the shark teeth of Carcharodon megalodon. Five species of the billfish family Istiophoridae (Istiophorus platypterus (Shaw and Nodder), Makaira indica (Cuvier), M. nigricans Lacépède, M. purdyi Fierstine, Tetrapturus albidus Poey) were identified from approximately separate bones collected in the Yorktown Formation (early Pliocene) at Lee Creek Mine, North is the only record of M. purdyi, the first fossil record of.
