In 2005 I was given a mineral deed for forty acres in Payne County Okla 08-19n-5e. In June of this year I received a letter and contract for $200.00 an acre. I was unsure of some of the termanolgy the landman had in this letter and I contacted an attorney about this. He neogated a contract for me and it seemed reasonable and he advised me to sign it as it would not get any better. December of this year I received a check for twenty acres instead of forty acres. I contacted my attorney and he contacted the company (Sodak Properties). I had the defend the title clause omitted from the contract and evidently they did a title search and said I was entitled to twenty mineral acres. My question is, why does my mineral deed say forty acres and they say I am only entitled to twenty acres? My complete discription is Northwest Quarter of the Southwest Quarter (NW/4 Sw/4) of section eight (8) township nineteen (19) north, range five (5) east of the Indian meridan Payne county , Okla.
Thank you for any help or explanation
