The site in Gove County where this biface was recovered is associated with two nearby quarrys for Smoky Hill Silicified Chalk. The site may itself be a lithic workshop. The site was first recorded in 1977 and revisited during the 1997 Kansas Archeology Training Program. A biface like this one could have been used as a cutting tool or, with more work, turned into a specific tool.
