The Tocomar volcanic center was the source of two major phreatomagmatic and phreatic eruptions during the Pleistocene. The Tocomar Ignimbrite of rhyolitic composition covers an area of 50 km2. It is located along the Calama-Olacapato-Toro fault zone south of Tuzgle and NE of Nevado Queva volcanoes.
