My mother inherited mineral rights in Loving Co. Gills 8 was the first one that she received a payment on. It was in the 1980's. Can't remember what year. It was from Standard oil and was for $8,000. So Gills 8-1 has been around for awhile. She also has mineral interest in Gills 6, Gills 7, Gills 9, Gills 12 and Gills 15. I also have been receiving offers on a weekly basis. Especially for Gills 8.
Jean - There aren't any horizontal wells permitted in the above sections that I can find but there are several in the area. Could hold good things one day.
