Summary

The Drum Mountains Paleoseismic Trench lies approximately 5–10 km west of Delta in Millard County, Utah. Two bulk soil samples collected from colluvial wedge (fault) deposits in a paleoseismic trench were submitted for macrofloral analysis. Botanic components including charcoal were identified, and potentially radiocarbon datable material was separated. In addition, microscopic charcoal recovery and AMS radiocarbon age determination was requested for both samples.
