TimeMag. / DepthDistanceLocation
Yate volcano is an isolated and poorly known young stratovolcano in the Andean Southern Volcanic Zone on the Hualaihué peninsula, Chile, south of the Relancaví strait and NNE of Volcán Hornopirén.
The volcano is glacially dissected and consists of basaltic-andesite lava flows and domes from the summit and flank vents. It contains 6 eruptive centers along a 7.5 km long fissure. Yate has experienced multiple summit collapses NE and SW of the summit. It sits on the Liquiñe-Ofqui fault zone which extends for over 1,000 km along the volcanic arc of southern Chile.
There are no records of historical volcanic activity at Yate volcano, but there is stratigraphic evidence of small eruptions in the Holocene, the most recent being forming basaltic-andesite cinder cones on the NW and western flanks.
