AbstractPaleomagnetic study indicates that the Athabasca Formation of northern Saskatchewan, Canada, was deposited about 1550 or about 1700 Ma ago at latitude of 39°. A Rb/ Sr isochron on regolith from below the Athabasca ( R.K . Wanless. pers. comm., 1977) suggests that the younger age is correct. Reversals in the polarity of the earth's field occurred a number of times during deposition of the formation and these promise to be of value in the chronostratigraphic correlation of redbed units within the formation.
