Archeological Survey of Grizzly Ridge 1995: A Section 110 Planning Survey, Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Monument, Montrose County, Colorado
Author(s): Gregory L. Fox
Archeological survey in the Grizzly Ridge new-lands acquisition in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Monument recorded eight prehistoric archeological sites (5MN4504- 5MN4511) and twenty-four isolated finds (5MN4512-5MN4535). The survey was planned and
implemented as a Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act inventory activity. The survey was conducted by archeologists from the Western Archeological and Conservation Center (WACC), National Park Service, Department of Interior, Tucson, Arizona as WACC project BLCA 1995A. A total of 875 acres was intensively surveyed as a reconnaissance of the Grizzly Ridge unit. In addition, boundaries of six previously recorded sites were mapped using Global Positioning Systems technology. Three compliance surveys were conducted in conjunction with this project but are not detailed here.
This report details the culture history of the region and previous archeological work in the park. Newly discovered archeological sites and isolated finds are described in detail. Preliminary assessments of significance, recommendations for additional significance assessment
procedures, and general research areas are presented. Recommendations include formal NRHP testing for sites 5MN4504, 5MN4505, 5MN4509, 5MN451O, and 5MN4511, and exploratory
testing of all other sites (5MN4506, 5MN4507, 5MN4508).
