Site 5PT86 is a lithic scatter located on the first terrace above the

Fryingpan River at an elevation of 8120 feet, approximately 23 miles east of

Basalt. Archaeological mitigation at this site opened several test pits, one of

which was stratigraphically sampled for pollen. The pollen samples were taken

every 10 cm to a depth of 80 cm in arbitrary levels for the purpose of assessing

the paleoenvironment. Cultural material was noted to a depth of approximately

70 cm within the area sampled (Daniels, personal communication, September 1982).

In addition, two metate fragments were washed in the pollen lab to extract the

pollen and microscopic plant remains that might be adhering to the grinding

surface. The analysis of pollen and microscopic plant material from these two

metate fragments was aimed at obtaining subsistence data.
