An isolated basaltic-andesite cinder cone was constructed on top of Miocene ignimbrites and lava flows between the Corrida de Cori range on the Chile/Argentina border and the Salar Río Grande in Argentina. Blocky lava flows from the cone descended in a broad lobe to the SE and in a narrow tongue to the east nearly to the Salar Río Grande. A second smaller vent lies about 800 m NW of the cinder cone. The relatively fluid lava flows display surficial breadcrust textures and were considered by Richards and Villeneuve (2002) to be very young, possibly of Holocene age.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Unnamed. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Unnamed 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 Unnamed.

The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Unnamed.

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.

WOVOdat WOVOdat is a database of volcanic unrest; instrumentally and visually recorded changes in seismicity, ground deformation, gas emission, and other parameters from their normal baselines. It is sponsored by the World Organization of Volcano Observatories (WOVO) and presently hosted at the Earth Observatory of Singapore.
EarthChem EarthChem develops and maintains databases, software, and services that support the preservation, discovery, access and analysis of geochemical data, and facilitate their integration with the broad array of other available earth science parameters.
