Good find!! It looks like a fossil to me! I can't believe they would pop a screw ( or have a screw ) as it could get in the way of the "dig", looks like some kind of fossil shell, I found a "fish head/animal head fossil " ( see my avatar) on spirit rover pan cam SOL 006- so a shell/ fossil seems normal to me! Again good find!
NASA missed this one also !!

I think people need to learn how fossils are made before saying something like this they see in a picture is a fossil.
here's a good start. How are fossils made
