Can anyone help with the identification of these bumps and scratches?

The area is a bit over 300 miles East of Darwin in Northern Australia - the geology is "mostly Cambrian, circa 500 million years old" (we have mobs of mining geologists but no paleontologists) - there are multiple layers of silt & seabed and a remnant of what looks like the dance floor at an extinction party. My first impression was of the remains of a muscle bed, as they seem to be paired and the correct size - but the more I look, the more faces I see in the flames. The Yolngu elders are anxious to learn the 'Balanda' - scientific - explanation, so that they may educate their children.


The pan image is of a point 400 miles due East of Darwin - are these vertical burrows in the centre of the picture or has fossilmania set in? The little island is just inside the point- something to warm the pixels on a winter's day in the Cromwell Road.


Any assistance would be much appreciated, particularly in respect of what to tell the traditional custodian.


Kind Regards
