I am new on this site ... and new to "mineral interests". My siblings and I inherited a small mineral interest in North Dakota in the early 80's. We have just received a "Notice of lapse of mineral interest". We didn't know that we should have been filing a statement of claim at 20 year intervals or been actively pursuing minerals. On a blog (not this one) there was a reference to a notice of intent not to abandon your mineral acres. I have tried to contact attorneys in the area but they have three month waiting lists if they are accepting new clients at all. After reading the general discussuions, I thought I'd see if anyone would have any information on this topic.
Thank you very much.
