PGRX Drilling Update: In-fill Drilling Program Meeting Targets
DENVER -- September 4, 2013
Prospect Global Resources Inc. (NASDAQ: PGRX) (“Prospect Global” or the
“Company”) is pleased to provide an update on its previously announced in-fill
As of the date of this announcement, the Company has successfully completed 7
drill holes, three of which were “step-outs” targeted to expand the existing
resource base. All four in-fill drilling holes completed during the current
campaign have hit visible KR-2 seam potash and two out of the three step-out
drill holes hit visible KR-2 seam potash, thus expanding the resource base.
In addition, five drill holes are currently at various stages of completion at
depths greater than 1,000 feet and a sixth drill hole was at a depth of 520
feet as of Tuesday morning. The Company is close to meeting the first
development milestone covenant under its debt agreement of having to complete
8 holes by November 1^st.
“The results are very pleasing and we’re on track to convert a significant
amount of our existing inferred resources to the measured and indicated
categories for inclusion in our Definitive Feasibility Study,” said Prospect
Global’s President and CEO Damon Barber. “In addition, the success we’ve had
in hitting potash with the step-out drilling will add to the existing resource
base and potentially the mine life. We are readying the first batch of samples
to send to SRC for assaying and look forward to receiving the results.”
