Going rates for mineral rights in Belmont County Ohio


I have been contacted about selling my mineral rights in Belmont County Ohio, they haven’t given me a price yet but I was wondering if anyone knows what a fair price is per acre? We signed a lease with the same company for $7,000 an acre and a 20% royalty last year and now they want to buy the rights. Any information would be appreciated.

it all depends on where you are located in Belmont County, and the other terms in your lease (gross@ mouth of well, market enhancement, net, etc), whether you are pooled/unitized, and the design of the unit - # of lateral feet, size of unit, etc.

if you want me to take a quick look, you can PM me and I’ll see if I can help shed some light on the subject.
