(OTCQB: PRHR) today announced it has entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement with an independent third party seller to acquire oil and gas leases totaling approximately 5,879 gross (2,930 net) acres, with an average net revenue interest of 84%, located in Weld and Adams Counties, Colorado. The total purchase price for the leases and associated assets is $2.582 Million.
