Proponents of Continental Drift would need hard data and that data couldn't get much harder than that found in the igneous rocks of the crust.Igneous rocks are formed when molten rock (magma) cools and allows the mineral components to crystallize.

These methods — some of which are still used today — provide only an approximate spot within a previously established sequence: Think of it as ordering rather than dating.The pattern means that the relative ages of the rocks can be estimated based on the orientation of the poles of the magnetic minerals in the rocks (with the understanding that it could have been changed if the rock had been heated after it had formed or if the minerals are in a sediment).If you know the age of one magnetic reversal and can determine the position of the rock relative to that reversal, then you can determine a relative age (older or younger) based on that.The reversely magnetized lavas (the Siemens Creek formation of Powder Mill group, the lowermost part of North Shore volcanics, Osler volcanics, and the lower part of Mamainse Point formation) are found in many locations around Lake Superior (see figure from ) during the normal polarity interval.

During this interval, a sequence of Portage Lake lava flows erupted within a two to three million year interval around 1095 million years ago.When the Earth’s magnetic field ‘flips’, the poles are reversed (ie, what was magnetic north becomes magnetic south).
