A team of Brazilian and Japanese researchers made the discoveries during a month-long expedition above the Rio Grande Elevation, which is a rise on the ocean floor around 930 miles off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Reuters reports.
Using a three-person submarine making dives as deep as 21, 000 feet, the team found granite and minerals like iron and cobalt.
The materials found differ from the rest of the surrounding seabed, leading researchers to hypothesize that the area was once an island

Perhaps a pre-flood civilization. Like that of Puma Punku. There's another site off Japan that's clearly man made but it's never talked about. Yonaguni Monument

I wonder if there is a simple (or complex) calculation for figuring out approximately how long ago it would have been to where that part of the ocean, 21,000 ft below, was dry (not a ocean)???
Stuff like this is SOOO very interesting, OP... Nice find!edit on 9-5-2013 by jhn7537 because: (no reason given)

It really makes one wonder if there was a older , very advanced civilization before ours . There very well may have been and we would never know it.
Further evidence of atlantis and Mu perhaps..............................................
