Cerro Cariquima is a youthful-looking stratovolcano, but could be Pliocene in age (Worner, 2006 pers. comm.) Similar appearing volcanoes elsewhere in this part of the Andes were K-Ar dated at about 3 million years. An unnamed cinder cone corresponding to the location of Cerro Pina on the lower NE flank was classified by IAVCEI (1973) as being active during the past 2000 years. Worner (2006 pers. comm.) however indicated there was no young volcanism in this area, and de Silva and Francis (1991) noted no evidence from satellite imagery of young volcanism here.
