A gravity survey (station density 4-6 per km2) of the south-western margin of Dartmoor, including the Hemerdon stockwork, was interpreted using previously developed computer techniques, with some refinements, to indicate the depth to buried granite. The results showed (i) that the Hemerdon Ball granite is an isolated block and does not extend to depth, and (ii) that no vertically-continuous shallow granite occurs at any distance from the known outcrop. Various computer-graphics presentations of the data are given.
