Logan Simpson Environmental Consultants to Survey Delamar Lake for Lincoln County Archaeological Initiative

Logan Simpson archaeologists and environmental consultants will be conducting GIS modeling and a pedestrian inventory to identify archaeological sites at Delamar Lake in Lincoln County, Nevada.

The remote, dry lakebed, west of the Delamar Mountains, dates back to the Pleistocene period. The Logan Simpson Team has identified more than fifty sites of early human activity in Nevada and Utah associated with the Pleistocene period. Our goal is to locate and record sites of early human activity to help the BLM in the Southern Nevada District meet its agency goals.

The BLM established the Lincoln County Archaeological Initiative (LCAI) to allocate monies from the auction of public land to fund historic archaeology inventory, evaluation, protection, and management of cultural resources in Lincoln County. Proposals are submitted annually to the BLM. Following a rigorous, competitive process, awards are made based on the quality of the proposed research, how that research fits the needs of the LCAI, and the overall qualifications of the applicant.
