Resum: Old South American structures constitute a puzzle where the Río de la Plata craton is the most important clue in the assembly of SW Gondwana. The present study was performed to improve the knowledge resulting from all the previous magnetotelluric (MT) studies focused particularly on characterizing the western border of the Rio de la Plata Craton. MT data were acquired along an approximately NW-SE 750 km profile at about 24ºS, from the Sub Andean Ranges in the province of Salta (NW) to the boundary Formosa Province frontier (SE) next to Paraguay River. Distortion and structure dimensionality analysis indicates that MT responses are two-dimensional with a NS strike orientation, consistent with the regional geological strike. A 2D inversion of the data provided a model showing a sharp lateral discontinuity, possibly associated with cratonic structures. The high resistivity (> 5000 ohm-m) observed, from about the middle of the profile toward its eastern end, may be interpreted as the terranes accreted to the Río de la Plata Craton during Neoproterozoic to Cambrian times, or even as the Río de la Plata Craton itself. Along the profile from the surface to a depth of about 10 km the resistivity model shows a significant resistivity variation in the structure. The resistive block identified at the western end of the profile represents the Sub Andean system. The markedly enhanced low-resistivity structure (~ 1 to 10 ohm-m) corresponds to a sedimentary pile whose thickness decreases from NW to SE.
