This one appears to be a backarc supervolcano pluton (location) as there is an arc in front of it.
I also dod not know of the one at Socorro (another backarc pluton).
Result is 2 impressive hits on the giant pluton discovery list to go with the SE.Toba-Tarutung uplift, The Mono Craters pluton, and the Mount Washburn (NE. Yellowstone) uplift.
SE.Toba-Tarutung is the interesting one as being an arc pluton it will erupt Sillar when it finally breaches the surface. The others are likely to erupt welded ash flow tuff (lower eruption output rate).
Have a nice day: Ag
