Summary

Bulk soil samples were recovered from fluvial stream terrace deposits and an alluvial fan

near Dixie Valley, Nevada. The area is located approximately 50 to 75 miles east of the Carson

Sink. The fluvial stream is perennial and drains nearby mountain ranges. Mountain ranges in

vicinity of the study area include the Stillwater Range and the Clan Alpine Range. Botanic

materials and detrital charcoal were identified in very limited quantities from the stream terrace

deposits, and potentially radiocarbon datable materials were separated.
