Dossier-25 0514 copie 3The Little Suchet and Clierzoux are located south of the zone "type Chopine" (in the bottom of the map) - from Parc des Volcans

The Little Suchet, also called the Puy de l'Aumône, rises to 1,198 meters and is contiguous to the west to Grand Suchet, a pyroclastic cone of 1231 meters.

It is a lava dome pelean type, composed of domite, a characteristic trachyte of the Chaîne des Puys.
This domite contains more feldspar and hornblende as the Puy de Dome.
It is covered by place of pozzolans, slag from Grand Suchet, pumice expelled by the last eruption of Puy Pariou.
Its slopes are forested regular halfway up.
