An age of 2.1 million years was obtained from this part of the Oranie Volcanic Field, a 2000 km2 field located along the Mediterranean coast of NW Algeria (Coulon et al., 2002; Liegeois et al., 2005). It is not known if younger rocks are present in this part of the field. Maury et al. (2000) gives ages of 0.8 to 3.9 Ma for the whole Oranie Volcanic Field. The volcanic products associated with this field are generally alkaline basalts; mantle xenoliths are also present within the volcanics (Maury et al., 2000; Liegeois et al., 2005).
