DENVER, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Prospect Global Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ:
PGRX) today announced that it has received notice from the Arizona Department
of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) that its application for an Air Quality
Control Permit has been found "administratively complete." The notice,
received in a letter dated February 21, 2013, marks the start of the agency's
Substantive Review of the application, a key step in the process of obtaining

In addition to the Air Quality Control Permit application, Prospect Global,

into mineral leases.
