Just inherited mineral rights,Now what?

Hello, My family just found out we have inherited mineral rights in Co.

My aunts think they have paperwork figured out.

The mineral rights are in Weld County Co. There has been some exploring and a lease that's all we know of now.

Any advice or input would be appreciated.


Congratulations! The best thing to do is to hire a landman or land manager to help determine the activity in the area of your property. Don't sign any legal documents (leases, deeds, division orders, etc) until you have spoken with a professional who can give you the most information possible so you can decide to how to proceed. Let me know if you have any specific questions and good luck!
