Comparison of palaeomagnetic poles from the Guayana Shield with the published Precambrian palaeomagnetic record for Africa suggests that large-scale (thousands of kilometres) transcurrent motions have occurred along Upper Proterozoic mobile belts in South America and Africa. Displacements of such magnitude are consistent with a transform model for Precambrian mobile belts.
