ABSTRACT
 
ERO Resources Corporation (ERO) performed a Class III intensive cultural resourceinventory and evaluative testing for the Energy Fuels Resources Pinon Mill Developmentproject. The development consists of 880 acres located along State Highway 90 inParadox Valley, Montrose County, Colorado. The legal description is Township 46North, Range 17 West, in the SW ¼ of Section 5, all of Section 8, and the N ½ of the NW¼; N ½ of the NE ¼; and the SE ¼ of the NW ¼ of Section 17. The parcel is located onthe Bull Canyon and Davis Mesa USGS 7.5’ topographic quadrangles.The cultural resource inventory resulted in documentation of 20 new archaeologicalsites and 14 isolated finds. The sites consisted of 16 prehistoric open artifact scatters, onesheltered artifact scatter, and three historic habitation sites. Of the 20 sites documented,four are recommended field eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places(NRHP) and 16 are recommended field not eligible. Isolated finds, by definition, are noteligible for listing on the NRHP. Controlled collection took place at eight sites, and sixarchaeological sites were trenched in order to evaluate their potential for subsurfacecultural deposits.A determination of “no historic properties affected,” pursuant to 36 CFR 800.5 of theNational Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), is recommended for the project area,contingent upon the avoidance of all sites recommended field eligible and uponconcurrence from the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) on all field not eligiblesite recommendations. Field eligible cultural resources are 5MN8269, 5MN8270,5MN8284, and 5MN8286. At this time, project development will not affect these sites.
