The NewPerl Prospect comprises a conical outcrop of glassy volcanic rock having a base diameter of approximately 400m and a height of up to 45m above the surrounding plain, suggesting good tonnage potential. A group of Mining Claims have been staked to secure this prospect.
Samples from the deposit have been tested for their perlitic expansion properties with very good results showing potential for a range of perlite applications. Specifically, two key targets have now been identified for follow up where samples have shown excellent expandability results for horticultural grades of perlite.
The deposit's pozzolanic properties are also being tested.
