Lying on the continental shelf along the Cameroon Line, this volcano is modified by the same NNE faults as Mt. Cameroon across the Gulf of Guinea on the African mainland. It contains numerous satellitic cinder cones and is the only Bioko Island volcano with reported historical eruptions, although they are poorly documented. Three eruptions, during the late-19th and early-20th centuries, have been reported from SE flank vents.
