The Canadian Shield holds great interest to me, and I was lucky enough to see some of that country. It is evidence of the last axis shift, when the terrestrial pole was probably in the Davis Straight. I don't trust ages that get put on anything. I will believe, old, but when they pretend to know years, over a few thousand, it's all wild-ass guesses. But, experts have to sound like experts, eh?
You see what I did there, switching to speaking Canadian?
Thanks AlderLogs it means alot that your learning the language XOXOXOX

I would like to hear more about this :)
I'm not sure I trust dating rock eirther but if they can learn the layers they might know more then what is just here in Canada.....Rocks and minerals have certian properties right ....hey its kinda finding a use for algerbra ;) lol
Don't worry Alder, I will be quite satisfied with a small piece...............................
C'mon, Wilde, we can't have Skye adding the Canadian Shield to his collection.
I am obsessed with ancient material from the earliest crustal formation. To date, the ISUA banded iron, deposited as a result of the first formation of life, at 3.8 billion years old is my oldest terrestrial piece.
Meteorites of course are far older material, from the formation of the solar system, and perhaps not even from this solar system, and have very strange energy.............
So now I see I will need to obtain a piece of this Canadian Shield material......
Want to take a little walk with a pick Wilde?
:) lol anytime .....The banded iron ...they have some of that in an article found in Quebec too I will see if I can find it now its neat ....they found fossils in this old rock too ....same stuff found on the Ocean floor living in volcanic hot water areas
I don't go into Quebec but I know the rock here in Northern Ontario is old too........I understand what happened to make mountains but the exposed rock around me I dont get totally .....dug out by glaciers .....but did we kinda buckel here when the plates push together on eirer side of us??
...Some of the exposed rock around this area is amazing I love walking up these huge rocks in the summer cooling by the river ;)
