SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quaterra Resources Inc. (QTA:TSX.V; QTRRF:OTCQX), a small-cap company with a portfolio of assets in the historical copper mining area of Yerington, Nevada, owns water rights, which are valuable assets in the deserts of Nevada.

Company mentioned: Quaterra Resources Inc.
In September, Quaterra entered into a purchase agreement to sell certain primary ground rights to Desert Pearl Farms for $6.2 million. The State of Nevada Division of Water Resources needs to approve the change of the water rights from mining to agriculture, a process that is currently underway, and the company expects the deal to close shortly.
After the deal closes, Quaterra reported it will still have about 6,700 acre-feet per year of primary ground water permitted for mining.
"Based on the recent purchase and sale agreement, Quaterra's 6,700 acre-feet of primary ground water is valued at about US$20 million," explained Quaterra's Chairman and CEO Tom Patton.
Analyst Sid Rajeev with Fundamental Research Corp., in a September, 2018, report, placed a fair value estimate on Quaterra shares of CA$0.49 per share. With 257 million shares fully diluted, that valuation implies a market cap of about CA$126 million, or around US$96 million.
