Geologists have announced the discovery of what has been dubbed the íBrazilian Atlantisí, some 900 miles from Rio.

The legend of Atlantis, a sunken island thought to have once lay between Africa and South America, has been the subject of literary myths for centuries.

But geologists in Brazil have now added their claims to speculation over the precise location of the mysterious land mass, mentioned first by Plato in around 360BC.

Working with scientists from Japan, experts believe they have found evidence of a continent that disappeared after Africa and South America separated, 900 miles from the coast of Rio de Janeiro.

The discovery of granite, a rock formed on dry land, was announced by the Geology Service of Brazil (CPRM) as a sign of a lost continent.

ďThis could be Brazilís Atlantis,Ē said CPRM geology director Roberto Ventura Santos. ďWe are almost certain, but we need to strengthen this hypothesis.Ē

The material was reportedly found more than 8,000 feet beneath the sea in a region known as the Rio Grande Elevation.

It was discovered last year when geologists dredged the seabed. Underwater observations from Japanís £84 million manned mini-sub Shinkai 6500 yielded more reports of granite formations last month.

ďIt is unusual because it is granite rock,Ē Mr Santos told Brazilian newspaper Estadao. ďAnd you donít find granite on the seabed. It is more usual to find it on the mainland.Ē

Hiroshi Kitazato, the Japanese researcher who led the work for the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC), said the region was of interest to researchers.

ďThis is the region that has been least explored worldwide,Ē he said.
