Mineral searches are generally prepared in anticipation of the lease of oil, gas or minerals to an oil company or in dispute of mineral ownership. An abstract of title may show all of the documents filed of record, which pertain to minerals. However, if an abstract has been prepared as “Surface Only” or an abstract is not available for examination to the individual requesting the information, a mineral search may be requested.
Mineral Searches will be provided upon receipt of written order and shall reflect mineral ownership and interests. Mineral searches will NOT reflect prior or current surface owners.
