State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Form 10-K, 10-KSB, 11-K, 20-F,
10-Q, Form 10-QSB, N-SAR or the transition report portion thereof could not be
filed within the prescribed period.

      Powder River Petroleum International, Inc. (the "Company") is filing this
Form 12b-25 because it needs additional time to file its Form 10-Q for the
quarter ended June 30, 2008. The Form 10-Q was due on August 15, 2008. As
previously reported, a Receiver for the Company has been appointed, in
connection with a lawsuit filed in the District Court of Tulsa County, State of
Oklahoma, Case No. CJ-2008-4855. The purpose of the receivership is to
administer and manage the business affairs of the Company and to marshal and
safeguard its assets.

      The allegations in the lawsuit include, among other things, claims that
Company's management has been grossly negligent and/or has acted in a fraudulent
manner in conducting the Company's business. Specifically, the Company's
President and Chief Executive Officer, Brian Fox, is alleged to have acted in a
grossly negligent or fraudulent manner in his dealings with working interest
investors (the "investors") in a number of respects, including but not limited
to: (a) failing to drill or perform promised re-completion work on leases, (b)
hiring an operator with a criminal and regulatory history of investor fraud, (c)
failing to take steps to preserve company assets, (d) taking actions which
caused the unreasonable loss of company assets, (e) withholding funds due to the
Company from affiliated entities he controlled, (f) transferring company assets
without an exchange of reasonably equivalent value, (g) filing misleading
reports with regulators, and (h) paying himself an exorbitant salary and bonuses
that were not justified under the circumstances.

      The Receiver has been engaged in an ongoing investigation of these
allegations. Based upon the review of an accounting schedule prepared by the
Company's Chief Financial Officer, the Receiver has preliminarily determined
that the Company engaged in a fraudulent "Ponzi" scheme with regard to its
working interest investors during 2007. In this regard, the Company's President,
Brian Fox, committed the Company to pay a minimum 9% return to numerous working
interest investors. During 2007, a total of $4,413,406 in interest payments were
made to those working interest investors, of which $3,263,004 came from funds
received from subsequent working interest investors, not profits generated by
the Company from oil and gas production. The scheme began to reveal itself when
there were insufficient oil and gas production and funds from later investors to
pay the promised returns to the earlier investors. Additionally, the Company has
failed to pay various expenses for the past 3 to 6 months, which has resulted in
the Company being in default on various obligations and some of the producing
oil and gas properties of the Company being shut down. One of the most recent
notices of default involves a purported Company obligation in excess of $1
million in connection with a lease of certain oil and gas equipment.

      Since being appointed, the Receiver has attempted to assert control over
the various oil and gas producing properties of the Company. The Receiver has
retained the services of an independent accountant who, with the assistance of
the Company's CFO, is attempting to indentify the Company's oil and gas
properties as well as its current and past due liabilities. Mr. Fox's lack of
cooperation with the Receiver has caused additional disruptions in the Company's

      The Receiver has also retained an independent oil and gas engineering
consulting firm to evaluate the known oil and gas properties of the Company and
its working interest investors. The report, which is expected to be issued
before the end of August, will provide the estimated oil and gas reserves for
the known oil and gas properties of the Company, as well as a geological
(prospective) evaluation of those properties. In this regard, one of the
principal properties of the Company, the Weesatche lease in Goliad County,
Texas, is the subject of pending litigation with the operator of the property.
The operator is a company controlled by John Ehrman. Mr. Ehrman has been a
subject of two prior SEC enforcement proceedings and has previously pled guilty
to a federal criminal fraud charge. Mr. Ehrman is currently the subject of
additional criminal fraud charges. Mr. Fox has been the subject of regulatory
proceedings in an unrelated matter filed by the Calgary Securities Commission.
None of the foregoing regulatory and criminal proceedings were disclosed by the
Company in its prior SEC filings or its working interest investors.

      The Company will be in a better position to evaluate its properties, its
prospects, and the value of investors' potential future revenues when the
engineering report is received and an accounting is completed. The Receiver
believes, based upon his initial investigation, that the Company's financial
statements will be materially restated.
