Breaking! Scientists Find Remnants Of ‘Lost Continent’ Lurking Around Mauritius

Scientists working on the island of Mauritius, located in the Indian Ocean, have found something quite remarkable – remnants of a long-lost continent called Gondwana.

According to the University of the Witwatersrand, roughly 200 million years ago, the then supercontinent began to break apart, ultimately making room for the large body of water we now call the Indian Ocean.

The fragment was discovered through the study of material on Mauritius that had been erupted by volcanoes over the aeons.

The research revealed that, while the volcanic island shouldn’t have any geological substances that date further back than about 9 million years, there existed zircons with an approximate age of 3 billion years.
