Hi Tom, thanks for the reply, same for Gary. I really do appreciate all the help I can get. Tom how does one check the Net Mineral Acres that you mentioned? We have two leases currently. One in Section 6, 7 North, 63 W, 6th PM for 156.28 gross acres with a 1.041% interest and one in Section 2, 7 North, 64W, 6th PM for 320.73 acres with a 2.083% interest. These two sections are seperated by section 1, in 7 N, 64W, however the acerage I mentioned was (may not be now?) origionaly part of my wifes Uncle's ranch which had 12 sections deeded before he sold it way back when. Now it's been a long time ago and I am a long way away in Ca., so checking up close and personnal is not an option for me. I'll poke around the Weld County forum as you suggested. I finally got into the COGCC data base that Mike gave me and what I found is interesting for sure.
The name of the ranch owned by my wife's Uncle was Coal Creek Ranch. Twelve sections deeded and 2000 acres leased but I don't know where those misc acres are located...
Many thanks guys, as mentioned, I really appreciate the help.

Hi Bob...you might want to plunder through our Weld County Minerals forum on this web site......lots of info there......Nothing much to see at the site of your mineral leases, just range land and dry farming. I don't think you have 7,000 acres as you indicated.....Check to see your Net Mineral Acres actually owned by you.....There is new activity throughout the area and it is hot for being a big play....You will see lots of wells over the next couple of years.....good luck
