Ok guys. I hope this helps.  The cores were taken by Dr. Jack Hough of the Univ. of Illinios during the Byrd expedition of 1947-1948.  They were taken to the Carnegie Instition in Washington D.C. and dated by the ionium method of radioactive dating by Dr. W.D. Urry.  The saples were takenfrom three different locations.  70 deg. 17' S 178 deg. 15' W 2,990 M deep, 69 deg. 12' S 180 deg. S. at 3,130 M. deep, 68 deg. 26' S 179 deg. 15'W at 3,292 M. deep. 

The fine-grained sediment that was found is the sort that is carried by rivers from ice-free continents.  Also during the Byrd expedition of 1935 geologists made a rich discovery of fossils on the sides of Mount Weaver (Lat. 86 deg. 58'S) which included leaf and stem impressions and fossilized wood.  In 1952 they identified two species of a tree fern called Glossopteris once common to southern continents (Africa, South America and Australia.)
