Background

The Bridge River Cones volcanic field is located at the extreme northern end of the Garibaldi volcanic belt. Pleistocene volcanic necks and cones were Potassium-Argon dated at 0.97 and 0.59 million years ago in the Salal Creek area and display ice-contact features.
Tuber Hill is a small 600,000-year-old basaltic stratovolcano to the north that was constructed on the Bridge River upland when neighboring valleys were filled with ice.
