Summary

One soil sample was submitted from a hearth at Site 5MN8269 in Montrose County,

Colorado for microcharcoal extraction and AMS dating. Microcharcoal extraction was chosen

for charcoal extraction because the sample contained an insufficient amount of visible charcoal.

Dating microscopic charcoal also produces a more accurate date than dating humates, which

are more mobile within sediments.
