Prospect Global Permitting Update: Arizona Department Of Environmental Quality Sends Notice Of Administrative Completeness

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 necessary approvals for the opening of the Company's potash mine in the Holbrook Basin of eastern Arizona.

In addition to the Air Quality Control Permit application, Prospect Global, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, American West Potash LLC, also has filed its Draft Mineral Development Report with the Arizona State Land Department as part of an application to convert certain of its state exploration permits into mineral leases.

The Company also is finalizing its application for the Aquifer Protection Permit, which it plans to submit to the ADEQ in the second quarter of 2013.

A copy of ADEQ "completeness" letter will be available on the Prospect Global website ( in the near future.
