DjRi-7, South Yale: Borden found a pebble tool assemblage that he interpreted as a late Pleistocene cultural entity called the Pasika complex. The date returned by I-8208 was interpreted to mean that the sample consisted of an intrusive root burned by a forest fire. Subsequent work by Haley produced three more dates from samples archived by Borden, and all of the ages correspond to the time spans of the Eayem and Baldwin phases of Borden's chronology. Haley interprets Pasika as an expedient technology that was practiced by several cultural groups rather than as a cultural complex.
