Nothing better than dealing with the next generation.  Usually they are so excited about the money, they give the farm away.  Listen to Gary on this!

Also, 25% cost free royalty.  No modifications whatsoever to that.

David, That is a terrible deal for the mineral owner.  Most leases are lob sided towards the lessee anyway, don't give up your upside by granting an option to purchase what little you have left.  Once your lease is drilled, your royalty dream may be worth well over $20K/acre.  

Along with never selling minerals, you should never give away your option to sell if necessary.

RE: 15.00 NMA in T26, S10,R36E

I am still working with my attorney to get probate from TX filed in Lea County so my two siblings and I can negotiate individually from my parent's estate. I have received a tentative lease offer for $2,500/acre bonus at 23% for 3 yrs with a 2 yr option or $7,000/acre purchase.  I am waiting on another lease offer.

You might want to reconsider selling your minerals. Most attorneys will tell you to NEVER, NEVER, EVER sell your minerals. I would talk to an attorney before you do anything. Especially if there is going to be some activity in that area.

Thanks agaon.  I have a day job NOT in this industry and am just beginning my education. I am Executor of an estate with 30 acres not under lease; I am conferring with my probate attorney on the document/title side.  Haven't yet decided to lease or sell.

I have bought interests in several tracts in your general area recently and paid substantially more than what you have been offered.  If you want me to give you a bid, feel free to reach out.  Phone is 832-390-6020.  

Best regards,
