### On the vanishing of negative K-groups

Let *k* be an infinite perfect field of positive characteristic
*p* and assume that strong resolution of singularities holds
over *k*. Let *X* be a *d*-dimensional noetherian
scheme such that *X*^{red} is a scheme essentially of
finite type over the field *k*. We show that the Bass negative
*K*-groups *K*_{q}(*X*) vanish, for
*q* < -*d*. This partially affirms a conjecture of
Weibel.
