Land Development

Mariana Center Data Recovery

Vintage Partners – Tucson, Arizona

To meet a previously impossible deadline for a land development deal in direct conflict with a large, federally-regulated prehistoric archaeological site, PaleoWest leveraged its digital PaleoWay system. This compressed the fieldwork phase of the project from a typical 18 weeks down to 10 weeks. Furthermore, the clearance report was submitted the day after fieldwork was completed and was approved by the lead federal agency, two state agencies, and tribes overseeing the project within 30 days, with PaleoWest’s scientifically important work on the Hohokam village site receiving high marks all around. The project stands as the nation’s first large-scale, all-digital archaeological excavation.

“Paleowest is considered one of EDF’s most trusted consultants. Their management and staff are always professional, responsive, and highly regarded as experts in their fields. Our Desert Harvest and Maverick projects, located in Desert Center, CA, were EDF’s first large-scale projects on BLM land. Paleowest consulted on these projects from the very beginning all the way through Commercial Operations. When any issues arose on the site, Paleowest was always there to assist us on the reporting and mitigation required under our agreements. EDF looks forward to awarding Paleowest many contracts in the future.”
