To all- If my Warranty Deed to my land (1.5 acres/Taft, California) does not mention anything about Minerial Rights, how do I verify I own minerial rights to my land? I have good reason to believe I own the minerial rights because I was recently sent a letter by a landman out of Bakersfield, CA and the letter noted I was the Minerial right Holder. Since then I have given the Landman the ok to conduct some Vibration/shot testing across my land, but just in case the exploration amounts to something, I would like to be prepared with documentation in my hands that proves I indeed own the mineral right. As a side note, I have conducted a title search on my land and nothing is mentioned about rights being held or transferred.
Any input would be appreciated.
