Why should I decide to sell or keep my minerals?

The decision to sell minerals can be an emotional one, especially if they’ve been in the family for generations. If you have time on your side and don’t need the cash, you may prefer to make a bet yourself and hold on to your minerals. If you would rather diversify your family’s wealth or limit your exposure to volatile oil and gas cycles, it may be the right time for you to sell and reinvest your cash proceeds. Feel like you don’t lean to one side or the other? You can always sell a percentage your minerals and keep the remainder to make your own bet on future drilling activity.
