Paleomagnetic studies were conducted on the Early Proterozoic Sioux Quartzite, one of the so-called "Baraboo interval" red-bed sequences of the Lake Superior region. A total of 158 samples were collected from 17 sites scattered across four basins (Cottonwood County, New Ulm, northern Pipestone, and southern Pipestone) in southwestern Minnesota. Alternating-field and thermal demagnetization studies indicate that the magnetization is dominantly single component, and that the magnetic carrier is hematite. Hematite occurs both as a diagenetic mineral whose long paragenetic history began shortly after deposition and as veinlets that formed during a strain event possibly related to regional tilting. The magnetization is tentatively interpreted to have occurred before regional tilting, although a definitive fold test is difficult because dips are low. Measured paleomagnetic directions at both site and basin levels show good clustering, and the average directions obtained from each of the four basins are not significantly different at the 95 percent confidence level. The good clustering at all levels of sampling indicates that the Sioux Quartzite was magnetized either within a short time interval or during a period of subdued apparent polar wander. The structurally corrected paleomagnetic directions from the four basins yield a combined paleopole location at 1 01 ° W. and 16° N. (k=65, alpha 95=11 °). Dated paleopoles for Early Proterozoic rocks in North America and age dates of rocks interpreted to underlie the Sioux Quartzite imply that its age is 1,700-1,650 Ma. This interval corresponds in part with the age of 1,800-1,630 Ma of the Central Plains orogen, which lies some 200-300 kilometers south of the Sioux Quartzite out- crop. Quartzite may reflect a tectonic pulse related to the Central Plains orogen. Preliminary paleomagnetic data on Baraboo-interval quartzites from Wisconsin indicate that the Sioux paleopole cannot be distinguished at the 95 percent confidence level from that of the Barren Quartzite, but that it differs from that of the Baraboo Quartzite, which on the basis of existing apparent polar wander data could be as much as 100 million years older. The paleomagnetic data support previously raised cautions that some Baraboo interval quartz arenites may have been deposited in separate basins at significantly different times

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Field Trip Guidebooks Series, Volume 145. This guidebook was prepared for field trip T145, "Early Proterozoic Rocks of the Great Lakes Region," as part of the 28th International Geological Congress in Washington, D.C., July 9-19, 1989. Separate segments of the trip were prepared by the field trip leaders and assembled by G.B. Morey of the Minnesota Geological Survey. The Survey, Priscilla C. Grew, Director, provided editorial and cartographic assistance and undertook preparation of the camera-ready copy. Individuals from the Geological Survey of Canada, the U.S. Geological Survey, the University of Minnesota, Duluth, and Southern Illinois University also contributed their time toward the preparation of this guidebook
