My dad passed away a few years ago but in the 90’s he inherited land and mineral rights in Oklahoma when his mom passed. My step grandfather filed a quit claim title for that land and mineral rights and on the quit claim there are two land descriptions, one states 25/70 interest in surface and mineral rights for s/2 se/4 ne/4 and se/4 sw/4 ne/4 of section 26 township 4 south, range 2 east in Carter county OK, the other says a 25/70 mineral right interest on e/2 ne/4 ne/4 and n/2 se/4 ne/4 of section 26 township 4 south, range 2 east.
I am told the 25 of the 25/70 represents the acres, so by what I read I would guess he owned a total of 25 acres in surface rights (which he sold in 1998, but retained ALL mineral rights to) and also owns a total of 50 acres of mineral rights between the two land descriptions. I was contacted by an oil valley petroleum about leasing the mineral rights but the representative said my dad only owned 25 acres of mineral rights. So i waited until the lease came to see which land description they wanted to lease, but on the lease it combines the two land descriptions as follows E/2 NE/4 NE/4, SE/4 NE/4, SE/4 SW/4 NE/4 Section 26, Township 4 south, Range 2 East. We contacted the county clerk a week ago to try to get clarification but have not heard anything back. I am just trying to figure out if he owns 25 or 50 acres of rights, I am not familiar with land descriptions.
