TimeMag. / DepthDistanceLocation


The late-Pleistocene Los Gemelos scoria cones were constructed along the Calchaqui fault, NW of Salta. The basaltic trachyandesitic cones produced a lava flow about 35,000 years ago that traveled to the west and then was deflected south. Monogenetic cones at El Saladillo to the NW of Los Gemelos produced a lava flow that traveled to the SE and south.
