I found these two pieces next to each other.
The scraper looking thing is quartz which is a bit rare here.
The other piece I about tossed aside until I looked closer. The edge is worked, it's a funky sort of semi-uniface knife. Not sure the material, as it's also not something I have seen here.

quartz and what looks like Limestone or a real low grade chert. both might be points by the way you scraper looks of have slight notches even though it doesnt have a stem. Maybe that is the material you need to be looking for.

I know it, I just need to get my zigs and zags in the right order.

Both are pretty thick on the non worked edge...other than that I agree the quartz one looks almost like a point. It's got an obvious bevel on the edge. Worked in a different way for sure, not flaked but more like ground down.

Nice finds. The thing on the bottom could be a projectile point. Its definitely worked and Ive seen some pretty crude ones before.

Good stuff!! The bottom one is a point of some kind? Not everyone was good at making points. Could have been made in a hurry for the next days hunt?

Possibly but it's like 1/4" thick on the top side....I suppose it would do the job though. :icon_scratch:
