When the o/g companies started declaring abandoned interests en masse , e.g. hundreds of properties in one fell swoop in the fall of 2011 alone, I have doubts that they ever advertised or tried to find the families of original owners.  Our family had a sub contractor for o/g who was able to track our family down, albeit after the fact.  So what kind of an effort was made by the o/g company?  Not a very good one apparently.    Another aspect is that this isn't the 1940's or 1950's and so many families may have mineral rights but no longer live in the Harrison/Belmont area.  Consequently, they may never be notified or even have a clue that they need to validate their holdings.

Here's the link

Here's the conclusion

{¶ 37} "We hold that a mineral-interest holder’s claim to preserve filed
pursuant to R.C. 5301.56(H)(1)(a) is sufficient to preclude the mineral interests
from being deemed abandoned if filed within 60 days after notice of the surface
owner’s intent to declare those interests abandoned. We therefore affirm the
judgment of the court of appeals on this issue alone, and the appellants are
precluded from declaring the mineral interests abandoned under the Dormant
Mineral Act."

My reading is that owners of severed mineral rights don't lose them automatically after 20 years of dormancy but have to respond within 60 days of the surface owner's declaration of their intention to declare them abandoned. Mineral rights owners need to stay alert to these notices or better yet, affirm their continued ownership by having the county auditor create a separate tax parcel for the mineral rights.

Did anyone attend the KWGD meeting at Atwood this week? Could you give us an update on the topics? If not, is anyone planning on attending their meeting at Salt Fork next week?

Thanks,    Shower Bath

Does anyone know a contact at Gulfport to lease 10 acres in Shortcreek Township?  I would take other names and numbers as well.

Comment by Ronald L. Rohr Jr. on March 25, 2015 at 10:45am

I would like to know why, if the marcellus and utica are so big in W.V. PENN., and the other state's in that area. Then why do they all have to be so greedy that they do'nt want to share the wealth it seems they all talk about making every one the same but they sure do not seem to really want to do that. I am just asking.
