Mass mailing with offers to buy minerals are commonplace in America. If you own minerals almost anywhere in America, you’d be the outlier if you have not received letters (and now getting into phone calls and text messages) of companies and/or people wanting to buy your minerals.
As you might expect, or should expect, they come in all stripes… the good the bad and the ugly. One commonality that is true 99% of the time is that they know more than the average citizen mineral owner about the value or unrealized value of your mineral interest. This is why it’s important to get informed. Usually, the first and most important thing to understand is how many NET mineral acres you own. The average bear is somewhat uninformed about this. It’s akin to knowing whether you have one apple to sell, or several bushels of apples to sell.
