Oil/Gas/minerals on property


I want to know how to  find out if  their are  mineral  rights of  some property will to me by  my until located in Chaves County.  
I live in  Texas and the  property is in Lake Arthur New Mexico
Township 15 South range 25 East, of the  New Mexico  Principal  Meridian

Thomson P,

The only way to know if there are minerals associated with a property is to conduct or have a mineral title search conducted.  An explanation of this process is on my blog page on my website found below.

You can do this but you must be there in Chaves County or you will need to hire someone to go over and conduct that research for you.

I will try to answer any question you have. Even if I reject a question, I still will give a shot at what I would do in your position. The only questions I will not take a shot at would be a highly technical engineering or geological question. I am beginning to see quite a few questions from land men and other oil companies and that doesn't matter to me either. I will attempt to help.
