Researchers Found Two-Billion-Year-Old Water, Which Tastes 8 Times Saltier Than Sea Water newsreporter.in

The prehistoric water was found at a depth of 3 km (1.86 miles) in Kidd Creek Mine, Timmins, Ontario. The research team, led by Professor Barbara Sherwood Lollar and postdoctoral researcher Oliver Warr, presented their work at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco last week.
Researchers estimated the age of the water by calculating the amount of argon, neon, krypton, and xenon in the water. These gases accumulate in the water over time, Warr told Canada’s CBC News.
