A group of pyroclastic cones of Pliocene to Quaternary age are located near Quesnel Lake. The Abbott Creek Cone, about 6.5 km N of Quesnel Lake, was given an Ar-Ar age of 180 ka by Kuehn et al. (2015), confirming the Quaternary activity. However, another outcrop thought to be Quaternary yielded a Jurassic Ar-Ar age (Kuehn et al., 2015).
