Marian, that is sale language. $10,000 per acre if you are leased at 1/4.

If you had a 1/6 royalty (.1667) they would proportionately pay you in the $6,600 range per acre. If they thought they would be able to lease the acres they bought from you in the future, you can subtract future lease bonus from the purchase price and figure out what they are really paying for your acreage. You should also be mindful of the tax on the sale.

If they buy your acres for lets say $100,000 and you have to pay 15% capital gains tax, you would net only $85,000 after the government gets their cut.

Good luck whatever you decide.

Thanks Wade

More press explaining the recent run up in bonus prices. I would estimate a 50% increase in average bonuses in the last 90-120 days. Similar articles in the WSJ and other publications.

Thank You Craig

Marian, I can recommend Wade Caldwell also.  He does a lot of mineral leases, is great to work with and his fees seemed reasonable to me.  You definitely should work through an attorney.  You wouldn't want to accidently sell minerals instead of lease them!  Good luck.

Your so right Saul.  We kind of felt with this offer having an expiration date of 9/1/16 that they were trying to rush us.   

Thank you for the recommendation Liz, Saul, and Eric.

Wade did a very good job for us as well as a number of other members in this group. Highly recommend him.

Comment by Saul on Friday

if even he gets it a quick run through, that itself makes a HUGE difference (and assurance).

Comment by MARIAN E TIBBITS on Friday

We thought our best route would be through a lawyer.
