An extinct volcano is a volcano whose chances of eruption are minimal. They are considered extinct because they have taken a very long time to erupt. Volcanic activity is however quite difficult to determine since some mountains that were once considered extinct have erupted although without letting out too much lava. Some examples include Kilimanjaro Tanzania, Mt Warning Australia, Chaine des Puys France and Elbrus Russia.
Extinct volcanoes are those that are considered unlikely to erupt again. This is because the volcano is no longer active and has no lava supply. Examples of extinct volcanoes are Mt. Warning, Mt. Kilimanjaro, Chaine des Puys and Elbrus.
