Iodine distribution, speciation, and isotope ratio ($$^{129}$$I/$$^{127}$$I) in both rock and groundwater phases were determined to investigate long-term migration of iodine in diatomaceous and siliceous shale. It was suggested that I$$^{-}$$ is released to the ground water during the progress of the maturation of organic matter. Dissociated I$$^{-}$$ could move toward the surface because of the upward water flow driven by the compaction during burial diagenetic process. Thus, iodine rich brine is created by integration of iodine released from underlying formations. Because of low affinity of I$$^{-}$$ to solid phase, released I$$^{-}$$ remains in solution phase, and the concentration of the iodine in the solution has been possibly increasing during sedimentation history.
