What other mineral rights do I have

Hello, I have recently received a gas and oil lease offer from Antero Resources and already have one active well with them. I did not know I owned the mineral rights to these properties until recently. I am trying to find out how to see what other mineral rights I have because my Grandfather purchased a lot of mineral rights back in the 50’s. Thank you for your time and help.

You can look up property records online. Do a search for “[County] idx”. That will usually bring up a link to the right website. Once you’re in the county records, do a search for your grandfather’s name. Find all the property he bought, and all the property he sold. If he bought something but didn’t sell it, you might still own it. Check the surrounding counties as well, as people who bought mineral rights usually didn’t limit themselves to one county.
