The Biliran Volcano is a large Compound Volcano or Complex Volcano forming the Island of Biliran off the north coast of Leyte Province in the Visayas region of the Philippines. Biliran Island contains many prominent andesitic lava domes, five fumarole fields and the most recent activity was a phreatic explosive eruption and debris avalanche at a thermal area at Mt. Suiro in 1939 with ashfall over Caibiran on the east coast. Possible other Biliran Volcano eruptions are said to have taken place at Mt. Pananao between Almeria and Kawayan in 1669 and another in Caibiran around 1800 near the site of the current Biliran Geothermal project. The Biliran Volcano is listed as one of the few active Volcanos in the Philippines and was monitored in 1954 when it was feared the Volcano was close waking from its sleep. The Island has many Thermal areas, Mud Pools and Hot Springs such as in Libtong in Naval Municipality and the Mainit Hot Spring in Caibiran that have become popular tourist attractions. Biliran and Leyte Province are also prone to earthquakes as they are on the Central Leyte Fault line, part of the Philippine Fault Zone.
