ANALYSIS OF BULK SAMPLES FROM THE ORCHARD MESA WILDLIFE AREA, COLORADO, AND THE LAS VEGAS WASH, NEVADA (2000)

DOCUMENT Kathryn Puseman.

Bulk soil samples from natural exposures or soil pits on stream terraces were floated to recover organic fragments suitable for radiocarbon dating. Nine samples were obtained from the Orchard Mesa Wildlife Area near Grand Junction, Colorado, and one sample was collected from Las Vegas Wash near Las Vegas, Nevada. Botanic components and detrital charcoal were identified, and potentially radiocarbon datable material was separated.
