                         South America, which presents a thick and extensive

                         investigated only by indirect methods. Integration of the results 
                         from both methods showed that the crust beneath the basin presents 
                         several quasi-linear highly conductive channeled zones with 
                         limited lateral extent, in coincidence with some of the main 
                         tectonic structures recognized at the surface, and a moderate but 
                         pervasive lithosphere conductivity enhancement beneath its central 
                         part. Upward movement of CO2-bearing volatiles and magmas 
                         precipitating highly conducting mineral phases along discrete 
                         subvertical fault zones that served as feeder conduits for Early 
                         Cretaceous voluminous continental flood basalts was a likely 
                         process responsible for the localized conductivity enhancements. 
                         Correlation between some of the linear conductive zones and 
                         elongated magnetic anomalies and between the maximum depth 
                         occurrence of most of these conductive anomalies and the Curie 
                         depth at which crustal rocks lose their magnetism gives strong 
                         support to interconnected iron oxides (especially magnetite) and 
                         iron sulfides (such as pyrrhotite) as the main conductive sources. 
                         The moderate bulk conductivity increase in the crust and upper 
                         mantle beneath the central part of the basin is unexpected for a 
                         postulated cratonic basement and is tentatively associated with
