Abstract : Environmental Solutions, Inc. conducted archival research and an intensive pedestrian survey for historic properties within the SA-5 Target project area. Encompassing 2.59 km2, the project area is situated in central Nye County along the eastern margin of Stonewall Flat, about 37 km east of the town of Goldfield, Nevada. As a result of the research, 11 historic properties were recorded. Ten of these are isolated finds of historic or prehistoric materials such as broken bottles or flake tools, and these are not considered eligible for National Register listing. The eleventh site is an historic road that is considered eligible for listing, but requires further archival and field research to fulfill documentary requirements for resource evaluation. Avoidance of this site, 26NY7813, is recommended. This action should prove viable since the property is located in the southeastern extreme of the SA-5 Target project area. If avoidance cannot be achieved, documentary research and a field reconnaissance and mapping program are recommended.
