Yes you guys win.. I'm not surprised, actually... they've been saying this off and on for years, as the debate sways back and forth.

We (Canada) win at the oldest rocks - either the Acasta Gneiss or the Nuvvuagittuq belt depending on whose evidence you believe, but apparently you guys win also at the oldest minerals - Jack Hills zircons!
