My great grandmother and great grandfather lived a while in Montana (FallonCounty) in the 50's and 60's. they moved back to Norway in the mid-60's.
They sold the property but kept the mineral rights.
I found a letter my father received at the beginning of the 90s that read detailed descriptions about the location of the property.
The letter was sent by attorney Denzil R. Young (dont know if he's still around), he wrote that this could be a good potential source of income if it one day would be drilled there. (It's been confirmed that it is oil there)
The last two or three years I've read a lot of the oil boom in ND and MT, it caught my interest after reading a long articleabout the oil boom in one of the main newspapers in Norway.
And I've found out that we are talking about an area of 1084.76 gross acres.

T5N-R59 E (S: 31: NE 1 / 4)
I'm not entirely sure, but it seems that this is about where the Red River formation lies.
Is there anyone who can confirm whether this is true?
