The central volcano was a giant volcano near the Mensix Mining Facility on Mustafar. On the ever-changing landscape of the lava planet, the massive volcano was an invaluable landmark, and many lost miners were thankful for its presence to help guide them home. An old steel bridge built by Klegger Corp. connected the volcano with the southern part of the Burning Plains.
Close to 20,000 gallons of lava per second flowed into the lava pools below the volcano. As the resources in this lava were of very poor quality, the majority of the mining operations were located in the higher grounds to the south.
During the Clone Wars, Separatists discovered the wreckage of a Republic cruiser near the lava streams that flowed from the top of the volcano. During their excavation of the cruiser, a cavern was built by the Separatists that later became a hive for kubaza beetles following their departure. After a field crew of miners was killed by the beetles, Milo Mensix ordered the cave to be closed.
