A Class III Transect Recording Unit Survey and Geophysical Prospection at the Burro Tanks Site (LA 32227), Chaves County, New Mexico
Author(s): Matthew Bandy
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Roswell Field Office retained SWCA Environmental Consultants (SWCA) to perform intensive surface documentation of the Burro Tanks site (LA 32227) in Chaves County, New Mexico. This project was funded through the Permian Basin Mitigation Program. It is intended as a study of this site for use in future planning action and is not associated with a particular undertaking.
The project area consists of a single block survey of 476 acres in southwestern Chaves County, east of Hagerman and just south of New Mexico Highway 149 (NM 149) (Figure 1.1 and Figure 1.2). The survey area is located on the Cedar Point U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) 7.5-minute quadrangle map. The Public Land Survey System (PLSS) legal description is provided below in Table 1.1.
The survey investigated a single cultural resource, LA 32227, the Burro Tanks site. Field methodology employed Transect Recording Units (TRUs) to record all cultural material within the project area in 15 × 15–m (49 × 49–foot) squares. This resulted in the delineation of the site boundary, the identification of sectors within the site, and a comprehensive characterization of its surface assemblage. This report details the findings of the survey and contains a detailed analysis of the artifact data collected.
