This is the first quest in the D.I.R.T.Y. Excavation Event. It's recommended that you start the series by visiting a D.I.R.T.Y. Recruiter in any of the zones that have a carpet to The Sinking Sands as they offer experience and achievement just for speaking to them.
To begin, speak to Jimbo McDaniel at a D.I.R.T.Y. Construction Project at -1378.81, -168.37, 738.05 in Sinking Sands. He will ask you to chase off several (12) Curious Monkeys which spawn around the encampment. There are plenty and they spawn quickly so this should be a quick task: right-click them to shoo them off. Return to Jimbo to collect your reward and the next quest he offers, A Strange Illness.
