Lost Continent Discovered Under Indian Ocean
« on: February 25, 2013, 01:07:26 PM »
Discovery, however, is not quite the word...

A group of geoboffins now think that further fragments of Mauritia exist below the waves: a sunken continent much like a certain mythological landmass that springs to mind.

The scientists examined lava sand grains from Mauritius' beaches and found semi-precious zircon aged between 660 million and 1,970 million years, which would suggest that it was carried by lava as it pushed through the continental crust.
