Property inheritance and mineral rights?

If you inherited property that was purchased during the Land Act of the 1800’s, do you own the mineral rights? How does one find out if they own mineral rights in this situation?

Kirsten, It is likely that the minerals were conveyed (went with) the land in the original grant. What is important for you to understand is whether or not there have been any mineral conveyances to any other party since then. Basically, this involves running the mineral title.
