Gravity data were gathered in the vicinity of the Mt. Stuart Block, a horst of pre-Tertiary rocks which include the Chiwaukum Schist, the composite Mt. Stuart Batholith, and the Ingalls Complex with its related metasedimentary-volcanic sequence, located in the east central Cascade Mountains of Washington. The final complete Bouguer map suggests the following features: (1) displacement of the Chiwaukum Graben occurs mostly on the west side in a narrow, 4-5 km, block 5.5 to 7.5 km deep, expanding in width to the north; (2) the Ingalls Complex is a relatively shallow feature: certainly a model hypothesizing a deep plug of peridotite is incompatible with the gravity data; (3) there is gabbroic rock at depth, below the Mt. Stuart Batholith, which on the west side has been intruded in part by rock of the Snoqualmie Batholith; (4) there is a thickening of the Teanaway volcanic rocks south of the western part of the Mt. Stuart Block; and (5) rock of the Mt. Stuart Batholith extends to the south beyond the Ingalls Complex and forms basement for the Swauk Formation.
