The Saskatchewan Geological Society, along with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS), the Saskatchewan Mining Association (SMA) and the Government of Saskatchewan are proud to present:


Sue (the Tyrannosaurus Rex) and the Chicago Field Museum


In the 1990’s, controversy erupted around the Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaur named Sue. From the seizure of Sue’s skeleton by the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), court hearings and an auction in which Sue sold for more than $8 million dollars, Sue's tale is an interesting one! 








Now, after years of preparation by staff and volunteers at the Field Museum in Chicago, Sue is now proudly displayed at the Field Museum in Chigaco, IL.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

      




Join us for an evening with professional engineer Mona Marsovsky, as she examines Sue's troublesome past and triumphant display. Mona is a life member of the Alberta Palaeontological Society (APS) and member of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology. We hope to see you there!
