Summary

Eight additional bulk soil samples from stratigraphic horizons in trenches excavated

across the Nephi segment of the Wasatch fault, Utah, were floated to recover organic

fragments suitable for radiocarbon analysis. Samples were recovered from both the Willow

Creek North (WCN) and Willow Creek South (WCS) trenches. Botanic components and detrital

charcoal were identified, and potentially radiocarbon datable material was separated. After

initial examination of the samples was complete, charred material was selected for submission

to the Graphite Laboratory at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in Livermore,

California, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) in Woods Hole,

Massachusetts, for AMS radiocarbon dating.
