Thanks for the advice. Other members of my family have signed. I seem to be the hold out. When I see numbers like $2000 / acre vs their offer of $1250 it seems they are looking for a big payday for an introduction. In their meeting they dropped their numbers at about $25 / acre which would be more reasonable if the final signing was for $1275/ acre. Plus I see little about Pro-Classic Real Estate (Tony Olszko) from Bedford, OH.

How does a drill put a hole in the ground and then trun sideways and bore a hole? I am in the learning stage so bear with me.

Finnbear - I don't spend enough time here to efficiently work the site. I clicked "send a message" and ended up here. I don't know if this is off list or not, but I also don't know if she meant the town or the township, which are quite a little ways apart. I'll try to find some other way to contact you if this isn't right.

10/20/11 10:43:58AM @rich-koehler:
Okay, I finally figured out there is a message system here. I have added you as a friend so in theory I can send you a message. However, it doesn't seem to work yet. I'll keep trying.

Can you offer any assistance on my post 'vested mineral rights'? Do you know any thing about this or can you direct me to an attorney who might?

Thank you Mr. Bear!! If this is correct, you have given me the BEST Christmas present ever. Even better than that Fort Apache with the cowboys and indians I got back in 1959.

it was in the steubenville paper, one we never get.

03/30/12 02:07:32PM @boop:

I know for a fact Wishgard doesn't pay everyone !! You sign the " Paid Up Lease" , they do the research , & then you get paid IF ....IF they flip it even if you have a clear property . It has happened to some people in Guernsey Co.

07/07/12 01:18:20PM @chris54:

the lease maybe easier to have resolved but the contigency fee agreement may result in a litigation.

02/05/14 06:34:04PM @chrisco:

Hello Finnbear. Thank you for the friend request. Feel free to contact me if you or anyone you know has questions about selling their minerals. I work for a mineral buyer and would be happy to share my perspective if it could help anyone. My email is
