Cratons in South America[edit]

The article on Laterite soils refers to the abundance of laterites on the South American Shield, but various articles (eg, Guiana Shield, Río de la Plata) list a variety of important cratons on the South American Plate. Perhaps a future edit could list distinctly, the shield areas currently recognised in the region? Aboctok (talk) 12:39, 19 August 2012 (UTC)
