TimeMag. / DepthDistanceLocation


The southern Coromandel Peninsula contains three areas where Pleistocene basalts outcrop--Table Mountain west of Tairua Harbour, an area NW of Whangamata and a larger area between Te Aroha and Athenree (Latter 1985, pers. comm.). Houghton (1994 pers. comm.) notes that age data for many of the Coromandel localities is suspect, and that it is possible that all of the Coromandel arc volcanoes are Miocene-Pliocene in age.
