Bedded scoria deposits that formed the flanks of a basaltic scoria cone are exposed in a quarry at Cerro Singüil. This cone is the largest of a small cluster of cones in El Salvador's interior valley, SE of Volcán Chingo. These cones are part of a broad area of monogenetic basaltic volcanism near the Guatemalan border.
