In accordance with this sampling strategy, sample unit U19ax (Figure 1 & 2) was surveyed by the Desert Research Institute (DRI) for archaeological properties. The U19ax sample unit is an area of 914 m by 579 m (3000 ft x 1900 ft). However, a large part of the sample unit was previous surveyed under the U19an and U19ba projects. Therefore, this U19ax sample unit...

Areas of survey included a pad, a powerline/access road connecting to an existing powerline and maintained gravel road north of the project area, and a cable way between the existing Site 5 and Site 5 West. All three areas were surveyed for cultural resources by pedestrian transects spaced 15 m ( 49 ft) apart. The cultural resources reconnaissance found one small locality (26NY8848) and two isolated artifacts (110994HD01 and 110994HD02). No buildings, structures, or foundations were identified...


Class III Cultural Resources Survey at Three Alternative Locations for the Proposed P-46 Facility, Tonopah Test Range, Nye County, Nevada (1996)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Lonnie C. Pippin.

Based on previous studies in the vicinity of all three alternative locations for the P46 facility, it was anticipated that each area could contain prehistoric and/or historic age remains, but that these remains should not be very large nor complex. Pedestrian surveys at both alternative locations A and B failed to disclose any cultural remains and only one cultural resource, a small rock cairn situated in a shallow bedrock depression (26NY9309), was found at the Alternative C locality.


Class III Cultural Resources Survey For Upgrading the GRl-l Facility Pad, Nevada Test and Training Range, Nye County, Nevada (2007)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Lonnie C. Pippin.

The U. S. Air Force (USAF) proposes to upgrade the existing GRl-l facility pad on the Nevada Test and Training Range (Figure 1). This upgrade will entail enlarging the existing pad to encompass approximately an additional 2 hectare (5 acre) area beyond the eastern edge of that pad. Although cultural resource surveys have previously been conducted along the power line which runs along this eastern boundary, the original GRl-1 pad, established in 1978, was never evaluated for the presence of...

Research Design For An Archaeological Characterization Study On Portions of Belted Range and Kawich Valley (Range 74) Nevada Test and Training Range (2009)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Engineering Environmental Management.

An ongoing task of cultural resource inventories on the NTTR is the characterization of various numbered ranges and/or environmental regions as archaeological landscapes. How to characterize an archaeological region is an intentionally vague and open-ended question. This engenders a variety of research approaches that in turn generate data on a range of topics relevant to the study of prehistory and ethnography in the southern Great Basin and northern Mojave Desert.
