Details for: Matutum
The forested, symmetrical Matutum stratovolcano rises to 2293 m in southern Mindanao. The summit of the andesitic volcano is truncated by a well-preserved 320-m-wide crater that is breached by three gorges and has a 120-m-deep, densely forested floor. Widespread silicic pyroclastic-flow deposits surround the volcano, which overlooks the major city of General Santos, about 30 km to the SSE. The volcano was reported to be "smoking" in 1911.
