|Satah Mountain on the Chilocotin-Nechako Plateau in central British Columbia and areas to the south form a N-S-trending chain of pyroclastic cones of Pleistocene and Holocene age (Hickson 1990, pers. comm.). Satah Mountain occupies the high point of a long ridge of trachytic lava domes and flows and basaltic and trachybasaltic pyroclastic cones extending south from the felsic Itcha Range volcanic complex. The youngest cone is well preserved and could be of comparable age to the 7200-year-old Nazko cone east of the Itcha Range (Charland et al., 1993). Most late-stage lavas capping the Itcha volcanic complex were erupted from cinder cones, tuff rings, and fissures in the eastern half of the complex.|
