  • Abstract Microbiological and geochemical data are presented to characterize the hydrogeochemistry and to investigate extant microbial life in fracture waters 2.4 km below surface, at the Kidd Creek Observatory in Canada. Previous studies identified the world’s oldest groundwaters with mean residence times on the order of millions to billions of years trapped in fractures in Precambrian host rock here. In this study, major ion chemistry, δ18O and δ2H isotopic signatures and dissolved gases in… CONTINUE READING
