Tore is a densely forested volcano situated in northern Bougainville north-west of Mount Balbi. The volcano is located in a 6 x 9 km caldera in the Emperor Range. Old lava has flowed 14 km from a post caldera cone on the southern side.

Well-preserved lava flows descend the south-west flank. The largest flow is 16 km long. There is a well preserved ash cone which indicates a recent age. However, the rest of the volcano has been extensively eroded and is probably Pleistocene age.
