A few months ago Antero sent me a letter saying that I had inherited mineral rights at Eibscamp Run, in Doddridge County, W.Va. They then sent a lease form to complete, offering some money for allowing them to drill. I became acquainted with Mineral Rights Forum to understand my rights as an inheritor.
Questions: Are the allowed to drill on my inherited area without my signed lease agreement? Do they frequently drill even though they do not have a lease agreement? Some of my relatives have signed but I wonder how long it will take them to get back to me. Are they obligated to contact me before they drill? I live in Boulder, Colorado, far from Doddridge County, West Va.
