Two coalescing shield volcanoes with 4-5 km diameter summit calderas, Hutt Peak on the east and Koerner Bluff on the west, form Mount Bursey. Potassium-Argon dates indicate both volcanoes were constructed during the Miocene; the youngest dated rock is 0.49 million years old, from a parasitic cone vent on the Hutt Peak caldera rim (LeMasurier and Thomson, 1990).
