    These large granite boulders found at Watson Lake are precambrian and have been dated to 1.4 billion years old! Their smooth rounded shape is due to spheroidal weathering in which water penetrates joints in bedrock, swells up with minerals that widen the cracks further, and then with time, erode away. The linear quality of the mineral deposits at the base of the rocks is evidence of the recent droughts.
