original, fundamental, or primordial hill


Explanation:
This is a geological term for a terrain that is original and has existed unchanged since the beginning of the landscape.

In the first reference, a study of colera and different terrains subceptible to it, the writer speaks of the primordial or plutonic area of Tyrol that was not affected much by colera in 1855 due to its "antique terrain with non-absorbent hard rock".

To see this example on the use of the word "plutonico" scroll down to:

desarrollado en los terrenos plutónicos
y cristalinos de España.
