Chiuerinde is a separate intrusion lying immediately northeast of Lutala (No. 25), to which it is linked by two bodies of granite. It is approximately circular and 7 km in diameter. Little information is given by Pereira and Moreira (1977) but their map indicates it to be dominated by eruptive breccias within which is a body of alkaline trachyte. Arcuate intrusions of granite, some alkaline, have also been mapped.
