...ROBERT S YEATS Abstract At Mt. Baring, Gunn Peak, and Merchant Peak in the Cascade Range 40 miles east of Seattle, two klippen of hornblende-rich migmatitic rocks overlie a sequence of weakly metamorphosed argillites, quartzites, greenstones, and Permian marbles. The klippen are composed...

... of basalt plateau at altitude 2440– 2460 ft. This flat surface was flood swept, but higher hills ahead to S and mountains behind on left to NE were not. Road climbs onto a pre-basalt high—from basalt up onto old quartzite. The Miocene basalt flows buried a moderate-relief erosional landscape. No overlying...

... recognized cyclomedusoid fossils in the Antelope Mountain Quartzite confirm that it is latest Neoproterozoic (Ediacaran) in age. Biogeographic affinities of the cyclomedusoid fossils suggest that the Yreka subterrane and its close associate, the Trinity subterrane, formed after the breakup of Rodinia...

... Abstract A ruling hypothesis for the central Cascade Range in Washington is that the Eocene arkosic formations, which are kilometers thick, were deposited in local grabens, such as the Chumstick Formation in the putative Chiwaukum graben. However, the formations are regional in extent...

... Structural Low. Although we emphasize mid-to-late Eocene stratigraphy and structure, we show that Neogene regional folds govern the map pattern of the Chiwaukum Structural Low and the surrounding crystalline basement. Thus, the central Cascade region has undergone alternating episodes of crustal shortening...

It may correlate with low-grade Mississippian–Jurassic rocks northeast of the Cascades core (e.g., Monger, 1986 ; Miller...
