POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, AND STARCH ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM SITES LA 108617, LA 172154, AND LA 172155, LEA COUNTY, NEW MEXICO

Summary

As designed for the Intercontinental Potash, Inc. (ICP) Ochoa Project, a proposed ICP plant facility will be built approximately 2 km east of the Double X Ranch and 35 km west of the town of Jal in Lea County, New Mexico. Samples from three prehistoric sites (LA 108617, LA 172154, and LA 172155), collected during cultural resource data recovery by Western Cultural Resources Management, Inc. (WCRM), were submitted to PaleoResearch Institute for pollen, phytolith, and starch analyses. While sediment samples were collected from a caliche armored low area and the modern surface for phytolith analysis, only the three ground stone samples were designated for analysis at this time. Through these analyses, WCRM aims to better understand the nature of subsistence strategies at Sites LA 108617, LA 172154, and LA 172155 (Wheeler and Gibson 2013:13).
