World's oldest microfossils?
« on: March 01, 2017, 04:59:57 PM »
A research team has identified what they believe are the world's oldest microfossils at a site in Canada. They are estimating their age at 3.77 - 4.28 billion years.

Others are skeptical.

On another thread, we mentioned a report several years old of the fossil worms in the iron deposits of Minnesota/Michigan. These Canadians may be older.
