In addition, the firm closed its previously announced private placement with a strategic investor of a further 2.78 million subscription receipts at $0.39 per receipt for gross proceeds of around $1.1 million, it said in the regulatory statement.

Prairie also said it had expanded its planned light-oil Granite Wash drilling program at Evi to four exploration wells (3.5 net).

The Evi exploration program will kick off this month (October), 2018, at an estimated cost of around $1.5 million per well to drill and complete.

In addition to its exploration program, Prairie Provident also plans to drill two lower-risk Slave Point light-oil development wells in the area following the completion of its exploration program. These wells are expected to come on stream in February and contribute to first quarter 2019 production.
