Abstract Experimental evidence is cited that contradicts a previously reported assumption that tritium disappears quickly from most iron meteorites or iron targets. It is shown that even for samples measured about 40 years after the fall of the meteorite and the cessation of tritium production, tritium is measurable, and in most cases the extrapolated activity is the same in different samples within a factor of two or three.
