Cleared up south end of G 6050 by about 10 a.m. Measured and photographed undressed face. On the south found no trace of further mastabas of any sort. Therefore ran out line of rail road from our dump at back of G 6020 and began throwing out debris over south end of G 6050.

(7) G 6016
In the course of clearing G 6050 south end cleaned also west side of the ramp G 6016.
