Hello everyone. My sister and i just found out we own mineral rights in Archer County, TX. It was a shock and we are trying to get as much info as we can before we make a decision. We have been offered a Seismic permit with option to lease. We would like to find out if the Seismic permit with option to lease is normally signed together. also they are offering $15 per acre for 12 month for the seismic permit is that good? The option to lease is a three year at $90 per net mineral acre and 1/6 royalty there is no mention of a lease bonus. Any comments are appreciated thanks.

$15/acre is good however 12 months is bad. Way to long. Yes Siesmic option is signed with lease. $90/acre is the bonus.

If you own minerals in Texas or New Mexico, consider attending the NARO – Texas convention in San Antonio July 18-20, 2018. They have a great agenda, good speakers, and the cost is reasonable. This year also includes a special session for New Mexico mineral owners. The current agenda draft is attached, and a link to their signup and information page is
