Extensive field research was conducted to identify and evaluate the cultural resource inventory for eligibility for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. Analysis and report documentation began in April 1981 and continued through April 1982, culminating in determinations of resource significance locations planned for construction area consisted of 4,308 acres in three discontinuous locations planned for construction or use in conjunction with live fire training maneuvers at Fort Irwin. Intensive pedestrian survey of 2,718 acres culminated in examination of twenty-one cultural resource sites and sixty-seven isolated finds, ranging from extensive prehistoric deposits of flaked stone artifacts and activity features to smaller activity sites, isolated finds, and historic mining claim markers. The additional documentation, recording, and collection of data was undertaken on four extensive resource sites totaling 1,590 acres. Of the cultural resource sites examined, sixteen appear to meet criteria for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. Three sites comprise a significant lithic resource procurement area and recommendations are made for a district designation for the National Register. A preliminary analysis is made of cores and blades from these resources with replicative studies and refitting included.
