Author(s): Thomas B. Renk
During April 1972, the Arizona State Museum, under contract with the National Park Service, conducted an archaeological survey of the Buckskin Mountain Tunnel portion of the Granite Reef Aqueduct, Central Arizona Project. Funds for this investigation were provided by the Bureau of Reclamation.
Archaeologists surveyed over 8 linear miles of the proposed tunnel, including the intake and outlet portals. Only one archaeological site, AZ L:16:1 (ASM), a tool quarry site with a trail crossing through it was identified within the project right-of-way. The survey crew recorded the site the collected the artifacts on the surface. No further investigation of the site was recommended.
