Abstract
In early October 1937, I received a telephone call from Mr. Rod Moss representing Mid-Pacific Geothermal Inc. During the course of this conversation, a request was made of me to conduct an archaeological reconnaissance survey on the property of the Estate of James Campbell in the Puna District, on the island of Hawaii. Specifically, the area to be investigated follows a proposed road alignment starting one-half of a mile outside of the geothermal resource sub-zone and culminating at the proposed drill site designated as A1 (See Map 1). After receiving pertinent information on location, permission to enter the land, as well as to cross other land, I received a "go ahead" on October 23, 1987. Furthermore, I was asked to contact Mr. Nobu Santo at the offices of Island Survey Incorporated in Hilo where I would be able to aquire a copy of the survey map as well as information on access to the recently cleared survey line along the proposed road to the well site. Mr. Santo was exceptionally helpful, even offering to accompany me through the neighboring lands to the survey start point on the boundary of Conservation District land. In early November we followed through with this plan. After arrival at his recently cut survey line through the forest, Mr. Santo returned to Hilo and I proceeded to carry out the field reconnaissance portion of this investigation. This report provides the results of this research.
