Mount Amorong is the only one of a cluster of small trachyandesitic lava domes and diatremes at the northern end of the Luzon Central Plain that displays solfataric activity (Wolfe 1982, pers. comm.). A K-Ar date of about 1.14 million years was obtained from the Amorong complex, which lies along the Eastern Bataan volcanic lineament.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Amorong. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Amorong page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

The Global Volcanism Program has no synonyms or subfeatures listed for Amorong.

The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Amorong.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
