Abstract : The areas to be affected by a shoreline regrading project at Dickerson lake were examined by pedestrian survey on 3 February, 1993 by the Staff Archeologist for the DEH, Fort Knox, Steven 0. Ruple. All areas to be affected by the regrading, including the route of the proposed haul road and dump area, were examined and found to consist of disturbed soils. In most areas, topsoil had been removed at some time in the past to a depth of 0.7 meters or more. It is unlikely that any in situ cultural resources exist at or near the project location. Therefore, the project should have no effect on significant cultural resources and may proceed without objection regarding cultural resources.
