ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the evaluation made by Constance Silver in examining the Nine Mile Canyon, the world-renowned rock art, in Utah. He along with Blaine Miller, an archaelogist, examined the area, wherein they did a two-hour drive south of the Salt Lake City, tucked into the rugged Tavaputs Plateau, the place contains upwards of 10,000 images, painted and pecked onto sandstone walls. Result reveals that the dust have an alarming effect on the rock art and had to be addressed immediately. Unfortunately, the documented results of the evaluation disappeared and nothing has been done to solve the problem.
