How are Mineral Rights passed down?

In a typical situation, mineral rights will be passed down through a will, just like any other property. Through this, you can either be transferred mineral rights or begin a mineral rights lease. To transfer rights, you’ll need an attorney to confirm your rights to the minerals, and then a mineral deed will be created. If the previous owner leased out their rights to a mineral acquisition company such as Rocking WW, the executor can transfer the lease to you so the mineral royalties then go to you.
