The Mokohinau Islands are the surface expression of a largely submarine rhyolitic plateau and are a part of the Hauraki volcanic region offshore from the Northland Peninsula. Burgess Island contains rocks of basaltic to rhyolitic composition. FanalIsland consists of a rhyolitic lava dome with an obsidian cap that is fission-track dated at 0.5 million years ago (Skinner 1986). Houghton (1994 pers. comm.) considers this date to be suspect.
