Background:

The Bufumbira volcanic field in SW Uganda consists of a group of about 40 cinder cones lying north of the large stratovolcanoes of the NE part of the Virunga Mountains. The cinder cones occur in clusters and were erupted along lineaments. They are typically breached on one side by lava flows. Their age is not known precisely, but they are considered younger than the stratovolcanoes of the Virunga Range, some of which are Holocene in age. The Bufumbira rocks are noted for their unusual ultrapotassic chemistry.
