You rarely find intact fossils in rocks which have been subducted (and thereby completely refashioned) and then uplifted. The key words in this question are "sedimentary" (a completely different mechanism from subduction) and especially "marine" which makes it obvious that the landmass was once covered by a sea.

khen, please don't enter answers where there already is one. Also, the idea is not to quote verbatim bits of text, which don't really address what the question is asking, from other websites. There are plenty of other questions coming up for you to tackle. It might be a good idea for you to look in the archive, or my feed, to see how questions are being answered by others.
