According to the earth sciences professor the water has the consistency of maple syrup and is much saltier than seawater.
"It tastes terrible," she told the LA Times. "It is much saltier than seawater."
The water is transparent when it first comes out from the rocks it has been trapped between but quickly turns an orange colour as the minerals within it, such as iron, begin to form."

That's just gross.

And I detect some sloppy science writing here:

"as the minerals within it, such as iron, begin to form"


Uh, no.

@ben
yes I think Form should have been oxidize.

I wonder if it is thick (and not part frozen) is it still water? or water with alot of rubbish in it?

If she really tasted it did she expose herself to 1 billion-year-old bacteria and viruses. Shudder!
