Background:

A series of youthful lava flows was erupted from vents cutting through Tertiary pyroclastic rocks WNW of Ipala volcano about 5 km south of the town of Quezaltepeque. These basaltic flows issued passively from vents along a N-S-trending fault without accompanying explosive activity. The vents are capped by low mounds of lava. The flows were considered to be of Holocene age by Williams et al. (1964).
