Mathews Tuya is a subglacial mound in northcentral British Columbia.[1] It is one of the six tuyas close to Tuya Lake. It has been partly glaciated so it is probably older than 10,000 years. The other volcanoes in the area include Tuya Butte, South Tuya and Ash Mountain. The volcanoes in the region form part of the Northern Cordilleran Volcanic Province.
