Oldest Life Found on Earth — The Microfossils of Nuvvuagittuq Supracrustal Belt
Received by the international journal of science, Nature, in November 2016, and published in March 2017, a research paper reveals the oldest rocks and microfossils ever found on Earth.

Around 25 kilometers south of an Inuit village in the North of Quebec sits a rare rocky outcrop. It’s known as the Nuvvuagittuq Supracrustal Belt. The metamorphosed mafic to ultramafic volcanic rock (a greenstone belt), over time has undergone extensive metamorphism to form what we see today.
