Archaeological Survey of an Alternative Location for the Carlota Mine SRP Substation, Gila County, Arizona

Author(s): Michael Stubing; Douglas R. Mitchell

Year: 1995


This report details the findings of a cultural resources survey of approximately 6.7 acres of land within the Tonto National Forest, west of Globe, Arizona. The survey was conducted at the request of the Carlota Copper Company, through Faverty and Associates, and the Salt River Project (SRP), prior to construction of an electrical substation on the parcel of land. Carlota is proposing to begin a new mine south of the existing Pinto Valley mine and west of Highway 60, located on Tonto National Forest land and these facilities will be associated with the proposed mine. The substation was originally to be located on a parcel of land that was immediately east of the project area. SWCA, Inc. had conducted a survey of the original substation location and the associated powerline (Mitchell 1994), and had found no cultural materials in either area. The present survey was done under a blanket Arizona Antiquities Act (95-20). No cultural materials were found, and no further archaeological work is recommended for the project area.
