A gas/oil company in our area has approched us for permission to survey our land for minerals. Apparently everyone in a 5 miles sq area except us and a few other has granted permission. They said that if they found anything, no drill, rig or derrik would be placed on our land, as it's not enough acreage. THey need someone with 100's of acres for that. No they wouldn't put that in writing. They said if we said no, they will find the minerals anyway, from the neighbors next door. They are being very persistant, coming 4 out of 4 days in a row. What should we do?? Has anyone ever done this? We do not own mineral rights, as far as we know.
