G'day mate: 1.7-billion-year-old chunk of North America found in Australia

"Scientists believe that one region of what's now modern-day Australia was once attached to North America, but broke away 1.7 billion years ago."

'After drifting around for some 100 million years, the chunk eventually crashed into what’s now Australia, forming the "supercontinent" Nuna. '

'Rocks recently discovered in Australia bear striking similarities to those found in North America, a study finds. '

'Researchers then determined that when Nuna broke apart an estimated 300 million years afterward, that chunk of land did not drift away. '

'The sandstone sedimentary rocks the scientists uncovered are not "native" to present-day Australia, but instead are common in eastern Canada. '
