Background

The Pino Hachado caldera in the Nequén Andes of Argentina was constructed along one of the branches of the major regional Liquine-Ofqui fault system. The 12-km-wide caldera is 150 m deep. Following the eruption of dacitic and rhyolitic ignimbrites, post-caldera trachyandesitic lava flows were erupted. Radiometric dates of about 1.6 and 1.2 million years were obtained on post-caldera rocks.
