The Tukuyu shield volcano is thought to be made up of basaltic lavas, though Fontijn et al. (2012) also note that it has never been systematically studied. The town of Tukuyu is built upon thsi volcano. Dating by Ebinger et al. (1989) using K-Ar and by Ivanov et al. (1999) identified three lava ages between 2.12 +/- 0.04 and 1.34 +/- 0.02 Ma.
