Background

The chain is located on the Chilcotin Plateau and forms a segment of the E-W trending Anahim Volcanic Belt, whose volcanic activity ranges in age from Miocene-to-Holocene. Volcanic features in the Satah Mountain field include lava domes, cinder cones and lava flows. Its name originates from Satah Mountain, the highest volcano, located 35 km (22 mi) northeast of Nimpo Lake.
Lava domes and flows are composed of trachyte and the cinder cones consist of basaltic and trachybasaltic lava.
The most recently formed cone is well preserved and might have a similar age to the 7,200 year old Nazko Cone at the easternmost end of the Anahim Volcanic Belt.
