Ice Age caves discovered under Montreal

Amateur explorers have discovered a network of 15,000-year-old caves underneath a Canadian city.

The passageway, which is at least 200 metres long (660ft), was formed during the last ice age underneath what is now the city of Montreal.

The "once in a lifetime" October find by Luc Le Blanc and Daniel Caron was the result of years of trial and error.

Connected to the Saint-Léonard Cavern, the cave network is six metres deep and parts must be traversed by boat.

For years, Mr Le Blanc and Mr Caron, both members of the Quebec Speleological Society, believed there must be another set of caves connected to Saint-Léonard Cavern near Parc Pie XII in the Saint-Léonard neighbourhood of Montreal, but they did not know exactly where.

Then in 2014, the pair got their first inkling of what might be underneath when dowsing rods - a stick used to search for groundwater - found a small fissure in the ground.



Quite an incredible find here :O !

I wonder whether there are still any artefacts in the cave that might help us to learn more about the ancient inhabitants of this part of the world?
