The NMR spin-lattice relaxation time T1 of a degenerate submonolayer coverage of 3He in a thin adsorbed 4He film has been measured. As a function of 4He coverage, T1 exhibits a maximum and undergoes a change in temperature dependence at a coverage near that of the superfluid transition in the underlying 4He film. Two relaxation mechanisms contribute to the observed T1.
