The eroded Lexone volcano contains a group of young lava domes in northern Chile SE of Tacora volcano. The domes were initially considered from morphological evidence to be of Holocene age (Moreno 1985, pers. comm.), but K-Ar dates of about 60,000-70,000 years were obtained from the young chain of lava domes (Clavero 2004, pers. comm.).
