A Preliminary Archaeological Survey for the Conquista Project In Gonzalez, Atascosa, and Live Oak Counties, Texas
Center for Archaeological Research
During late February and early March 1979, an archaeological and historical survey for the Jacobs, Tom Retzloff and Smith-Striddle properties in Gonzalez, Atascosa and Live Oak Counties was conducted. These properties are leased by the Continental Oil Company. The purpose of the survey was to evaluate the archaeological and historic potential of these properties before the leases are extensively modified by proposed uranium mining operations. The survey was conducted under the terms of a contract between Continental Oil Company’s Project, as represented by Mr. Morris Merritt and Mr. Charles Salsman, and Dr. Thomas R. Hester, Director, Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio.
