I unexpectedly inherited mineral rights in Love Country from my grandparents in 2013. I believe the rights are for sections 36-6S-1E, 31-6S-1E, and 6-7S-2E.
Not long after the will went through probate I received a letter from Lowry Land Co., acting on behalf of Continental Resources Inc, offering a lease for section 36-6S-1E (no mention of the other two sections).
Section 36-6S-1E is 225 acres, and the offer was $600 per acre for a 3 year term with 3/16 royalty.
Not knowing anything about mineral rights, I just set the letter aside and did nothing about it.
Now, 5 years later, I would like to do something, and I am not sure the best place to start? Is it best to go back to Lowry Land Co. and ask if they are still interested? I also wonder of someone might have been simply taking the minerals since I did not respond?
I appreciate any advice,
