El Volcán is one of several stratovolcanoes located east of the vigorous Geisers del Tatio geothermal field. Lava flows at the base of the volcano are dacitic, while those at the upper part are andesitic-to-dacitic. El Volcán was considered by González-Ferrán (1995) to be of Pleistocene-Holocene age, but de Silva (2007 pers. comm) assigned it a probable Pleistocene age.
