Summary

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.
