Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Wells Gray-Clearwater
The Wells Gray-Clearwater volcanic field in the Quesnel Highland of east-central British Columbia contains basaltic cones and lava flows of early Pleistocene-to-Holocene age. Dragon Cone (above) produced lava flows that traveled 14 km down Falls Creek to the Clearwater River. Pleistocene deposits of the volcanic field include plateau-capping lava flows, subglacial mounds and tuyas, and hyaloclastites. Several cones were active during the Holocene, and the latest eruption took place from Kostal cone about 400 years ago. Photo by Cathie Hickson (Geological Survey of Canada).
