Long-lost Resurrection tectonic plate that formed 60 MILLION years may be lurking beneath Canada

A team from the University of Houston College believes to have uncovered remains of the Resurrection plate hundreds of miles beneath a region of northern Canada. Researchers identified a massive chunk below the Yukon that closely matches what they suggest is the shape of the Resurrection plate during the Cenozoic Era

It is though that the ancient plate moved sideways and downwards into the Earth's mantle between 40 and 60 million years ago, but has since been deformed due to the earth's intense heat

Jonny Wu and Spenser Fuston, a student at the University of Houston, applied a new technique called 'slab folding' to reconstruct what the tectonic plates would have looked like during the early Cenozoic Era
