Abstract

The presence of pre-Quaternary microfossils and anomalously old radiocarbon dates frorh fine-grained organic material in Lake Manitoba sediment suggests that old noncarbonate carbon is contaminating these fine-grained deposits. The relative abundance of the pre-Quaternary microfossils in these muds is used as a guide to correcting the anomalous 14C dates.
