Why Sell to Stone Hill Minerals?

Why Sell to Stone Hill Minerals?


Oil and gas is a boom and bust industry and comes with commodity price risk and many other risks. By selling your minerals you could receive cash now as opposed to potentially receiving declining monthly cash payments or run the risk of your minerals never being drilled and receiving no lease or royalty bonus payments. Taking advantage of the historically high prices now can increase your certainty in your future financial planning. 


Selling your minerals converts property with inherent uncertainty into a cash lump sum today. You can also diversify your assets by only selling a portion of your minerals and receive cash now and potential monthly royalty payments in the future.


Leaving cash is often much more simple and less expensive than dividing an oil and gas mineral estate among your heirs.


Oil and gas lease bonus payments and royalties are generally taxed as ordinary income.  If you sell your minerals, the income will likely be taxed at historically low long-term capital gains rates if you have owned the minerals for more than one year.


Selling your minerals can simplify your life by reducing paperwork. Owning oil and gas minerals can involve a lot of time and effort, including: negotiating and signing a lease; signing division orders; tracking royalty payments; and preparing property and federal income tax forms. Additionally, if you are selling a portion of your minerals to us then we can potentially manage your remaining minerals for you.

What are oil & gas mineral, royalty and overriding royalty interests?

Owners of oil and gas mineral, royalty or overriding royalty interests receive revenue from producing oil and gas wells without paying drilling or monthly operating costs associated with the wells. Mineral and royalty interests involve ownership of the oil and gas minerals under the ground, whereas overriding royalty interests (ORRI) do not involve ownership of the oil and gas minerals. Instead ORRI’s involve ownership of a portion of the revenue associated with the oil and gas production. The revenue ownership of an ORRI ends when the oil and gas lease expires. Conversely, the owners of mineral and royalty interests still own the oil and gas minerals after a lease has expired.

What type of interests does Stone Hill Minerals buy?

Stone Hill Minerals buys producing and non-producing mineral, royalty and overriding royalty interests in oil and gas basins across the US with a focus in the Appalachian, Permian and DJ basins. Stone Hill Minerals will consider any deal size.

Why do people sell their minerals?

There are many reasons why a person may sell all or a portion of their minerals including: the desire to reduce risk, obtain cash now, simplify estate planning and paper work as well as take advantage of historically high offers and low long-term capital gains tax rates.

What information do I need to provide?

Initially we will need the state, county and your parcel information. If we are interested in buying your minerals we may request additional information such as a copy of your lease and your last three royalty statements if your minerals are producing. We will then respond quickly with a competitive offer. If you accept the offer we will then conduct a short diligence process and prepare the mineral deeds and mail you an Order of Payment for your signature.


We consider many variables when making you a competitive offer, including: the location of your minerals, drilling activity, and offset well production. If your minerals are leased we also review the terms of your lease, the quality of the operator, and any royalty payments you are receiving.

If I receive an offer am I obligated to sell?

No. You are not obligated to sell until you have signed an Order of Payment.

Can I sell my minerals if I am currently receiving a royalty check?

Yes.  Stone Hill Minerals buys producing interests.

Can I sell my minerals if they are unleased and undeveloped?

Yes. Stone Hill Minerals buys non-producing interests.

How long will it take to receive my cash once I sign an Order of Payment

Once the Order of Payment is signed we typically provide cash within 45-60 business days. We cover all costs associated with the sale including deed preparation and filing fees.
