At a tax sale 5 years ago, I bought 2 different parcels of coal rights only that came up for sale thinking down the road either 1. I could find a company to do the mining or 2. The person who owned the surface rights would want to buy them for themselves so they could have it mined, or to make sure it never got mined. Received a call from a guy that owns 60 acres of surface land, that he thought included the coal rights, but has now found out that I own them. He is interested in buying them. Does anybody know how much / acre coal rights are worth? This is for coal only, NOT oil and gas. I know for a fact that part of this land has already been mined 20 some years ago so some of the acreage still has coal on it, and some has been mined. I have no idea how thick the coal veins are, or how much is / was there. How much would you charge / acre?
