Mineral Owner Advice - East Texas

Hello, I am new to all of this.

My family has mineral rights in East Texas and a small royalty company reached out to us to purchase the rights. It is a lot of family members and I believe we all have two acres each.

The company originally sent a letter about leasing however I think they talk my family into selling. I advised them to hold off because it doesn’t feel right. From what I’ve been reading on here. Leasing is better??

cp could you share what County/Section/Block and or Abstract # the minerals are located so we can see if there is production or activity in that area. That could give you an indication of what could be happening in that area for someone to want to buy your minerals…they may know something that you don’t know.
