"In a paper published online Monday in Nature Geoscience, an international research team reports that it has found evidence of a lost "microcontinent" in the Indian Ocean, northeast of Madagascar. The scientists analyzed sands they found on the beaches of the island nation of Mauritius and found traces of an ancient mineral called zircon. That's noteworthy because Mauritius is a relatively young, volcanic island, while zircon is typically found in much older, continental crust."

How could it be 'lost' if they never knew it existed before hand.

Wouldn't the correct term be "discovered a previously unknown....."?

Just to clarify: what they have found is chemicals in rocks that came from earlier rocks that formed in the supercontinent Rodinia 1,000,000,000 years ago.
