I used to do this kind of stuff, but I gave up after considering the probability and odds involved with encountering a "fossil" on the surface of
Probably next to impossible, if being realistic.
Giant silicon dioxide storms have been sand blasting the surface of Mars for millions of years. it takes full radiation exposure from the sun, and the
environment is extremely desiccant.
Anything that could be a fossil on the surface, is being obliterated by that environment, especially when you factor in thermal stress from the
massive hot/cold swings over time.
I stopped colorizing the Curiosity images. It really doesn't matter if you find anything in these images.
No follow-up can be performed, with Curiosity's tool-set. JPL/NASA/MSL really won't even bother to consider outside input on Curiosity findings.
They've done a very very very small handful of checks over previously seen area, due to public input, but in those situations they were probably going
to do it anyway.
What I'm having better luck with, is waiting for the next rover to get there.
Curiosity is a done game.
The next rover will be able to get us some real answers. Probably.
