Perlite, in its raw state, is silicate (obsidian) rock of volcanic origin. The rock is then crushed.

When fired in a kiln to a temperature of 850900 C, perlite softens (since it is a glass). Water trapped in the structure of the material vapourises and escapes, causing the expansion of the material to 1018 times its original volume.

When expanded, the material is a brilliant white colour.

Due to its low density, many commercial applications for perlite have developed. In the construction and manufacturing fields, it is used in lightweight plasters, mortars, insulation and ceiling tiles.

In the human health field it will be found in a whole variety of air filters. It is used extensively as an alternative to diatomaceous earth.

In horticulture industry, perlite is used as a soil amendment or alone as a medium for hydroponics or for starting cuttings. When used as an additive it helps prevent water loss and soil compaction.

Perlite is experiencing a growing popularity worldwide.

   Uncha Lake Prospect - Originally staked in 1953 by C.S. Powney and J. Rasmussen of Fort St. James and their associates, the Uncha Lake perlite prospect has been explored by trenching and limited laboratory processing tests. The property is located northwest slope of Dayeezcha Mountain between 975 and 40 kilometres south of the town of Bums Lake on the 1125 metres elevation. British Columbia Minister of Mines reports indicate that in 1955 Technical Mines Consultants Limited exposed six mineablep erlite layers along a zone 850 metres long and 500 metres wide. The company reported the layers are "irregular in width and attitude, lying interbedded in a folded series of rhyolites striking generally northeast and dipping about 70" to the southeast". James (1955) reports the maximum exposed width of at least two layers exceeds 45 sufficiently narrow to permit practical open-pit mining of two metres, and that in some places interbedded rhyolite is or more layersf rom onep it. Currently the property is inactive and the old trenches are partially filled. Past company records are not available so the following description is based on field observations only.
