Welcome to US Mineral Exchange

When US Mineral Exchange was founded in 2012, our goal was simple.  We wanted to provide mineral owners with the resources they needed to make smart decisions about their mineral rights.   In addition, we wanted to provide mineral owners with a platform where they could sell mineral rights for the highest possible value.   We’re happy you are interested in learning more about US Mineral Exchange and how our services are custom tailored to fit your needs.

About US Mineral Exchange

After spending years in the oil and gas industry, we noticed a disturbing trend of mineral owners being taken advantage of.   Few mineral owners have the tools and information necessary to successfully sell their mineral rights for the highest market value.   We found that numerous mineral owners were being taken advantage of by mineral buyers who would offer them far below market value and make a huge profit.  We knew there had to be a better way.

We launched US Mineral Exchange to help even the playing field between mineral owners and the industry professionals.  We do this in three ways:

Education:  Mineral owners are at a huge disadvantage when they sell mineral rights.  Most mineral owners know little to nothing about mineral rights.  Mineral buyers know this and they take advantage of mineral owners.   Our blog is the go to resource for mineral owners.  We provide in depth information to help you understand every aspect of mineral rights ownership.   We explain everything including mineral interest types, estimating value, how to sell for maximum value, mineral buyers, taxes, and so much more!

Pricing:  One of the key problems mineral owners face is ensuring they get maximum value when selling mineral rights.  For years, mineral owners were selling mineral rights without getting competitive bids.  With limited options and very little information, mineral owners were selling mineral rights far below market value.    We created a custom built listing platform that allows mineral owners to get their property in front of our huge network of mineral buyers.   The key to getting maximum value when selling mineral rights is competition.  At US Mineral Exchange that is exactly what we provide.

Closing:  Another area where mineral owners are commonly taken advantage of is the closing process.  There are a lot of ways that mineral buyers get the upper hand.  They will insert language into a mineral deed giving them past royalties that should be due to you.  Mineral buyers will give themselves the ability to adjust the price at closing so you get significantly less than expected.   Most mineral buyers require you to send a signed mineral deed transferring the ownership before you even get paid!

At US Mineral Exchange, we have a clearly defined closing process.  This process has been carefully adjusted over the years to ensure your interests are protected and closing goes smoothly.  Our escrow process ensures that both you and the buyer are protected when closing the transaction.   While pricing is important, it is equally important to partner with a company who can guide you through the closing process.   At US Mineral Exchange we are with you every step of the way ensuring your interests are protected.

By focusing on these three core areas, US Mineral Exchange has successfully been helping mineral owners sell mineral rights for maximum value since 2012.

Our Team

At US Mineral Exchange, our team is focused completely on mineral owners.   We are intensely focused on providing the best possible service by helping mineral owners receive maximum value when they sell mineral rights.  Each team member is dedicated to protecting a mineral owners best interests at all times.  We firmly believe in the “old school” way of doing business where people are honest and follow through with what they say.

Communication is the cornerstone of our company.   Today, it seems impossible to actually talk to a person on the phone or get a quick response at many businesses.  Our goal is to respond to every communication within 24 hours.  Typically we respond within hours.

    Common Questions

    The more information you can provide about your property the better!  We can give you a better idea about the value of selling mineral rights if you provide more information.  The most important thing we need is for you to answer the questions and provide your state and county.

    If you have the required documents to list, providing those is extremely helpful!

    Absolutely not!  When you inquire at US Mineral Exchange we will not be putting any pressure on you to sell.  We will help answer any questions you have whether you are interested in selling or not.

    We typically respond to inquiries in less than 12 hours and usually within hours of submitting the contact form. At US Mineral Exchange our goal is to be available to mineral owners as a resource so we pride ourselves on quickly replying and communicating with mineral owners.

    At US Mineral Exchange, we take privacy very seriously. We will NEVER sell your information or use it without your consent. When you send us documentation or tell us about your property, that information does not go outside our company without your consent. Even when you list a property for sale on our website, we strictly control who has access to the information about your listing so that only legitimate buyers will be able to see property details.

    Many mineral owners make the mistake of getting an offer and quickly selling.   They then accept an offer far below market value because they felt pressure to sell.   There is nearly always a better price available.

    Imagine you were selling a home.  Would you get the best price from a random person who walks up and makes you an offer?  No way!  Now imagine you list the home on the MLS where thousands of potential buyers know your house is for sale.   The key to getting the best price is competition.  Our guide to selling mineral rights explains everything.

    The reason that so many mineral owners decide to sell mineral rights at US Mineral Exchange is access to our large network of mineral rights buyers. Our goal is to help you get top dollar for selling mineral rights by getting your property in front of a huge audience of buyers. This allows buyers to compete against one another which ensures you get fair market value for selling mineral rights.

    There are absolutely no cost to list your property.  When you locate a buyer by listing your property with us, we are paid a commission directly by the buyers closing agent. This means you never have any out of pocket expenses ever.  We only get paid if we can get you a better price than the current offer you have in hand.

    I needed to sell my mineral rights to pay off a debt, and the people at US Mineral Exchange made that possible. Everyone I spoke with and emailed was very knowledgeable and professional, and they helped me every step of the way. They were also very patient with me, which I appreciate. The final sale price seemed fair, and was certainly more than I could have gotten if I had tried to do this myself.read more

    We had a super experience working with Terra on the sale of our mineral rights. She was very patient with us and explained everything very clearly, which was helpful since we had no experience in this area, and she never talked down to us depite our ignorance. She was also professional in that she paid attention to every detail, down to indicating the paper size that was required for printing our documents! She kept us informed at every step of the process. She clearly knows her field well and made suggestions that allowed us to receive an excellent price for our rights. I would highly recommend using USME for any sale you are considering.read more

    My aging mother-in-law needed to sell some mineral rights in Oklahoma and Kansas. I was the family member "appointed" to find a buyer(s). I knew NOTHING about energy or mineral rights. However, I "stumbled" onto the US Mineral Exchange website and connected with their rep Terra Castagna. Terra patiently explained their process for getting rights evaluated and sold. The value of our rights did not meet the threshold for their usual sales, but Terra offered to make our rights known to potential buyers of smaller positions. In a very short time several buyers expressed interest and we quickly reached an agreement with one who was willing to buy both rights. We could not be happier with the service provided by US Mineral Exchange, and in particular, with Terra Costagna, and would unreservedly endorse their services.read more

    Selling oil and mineral rights is not a common practice, or at least not for us. We went from "how on earth will we do this and do it right" to a very successful sale in record time. I am so happy that we found US Mineral Exchange. From the first phone call they were professional, answered all of my questions, and walked me through every step of the process with calm professionalism, and brought a price exceeding our expectations. From a seller's perspective, it could not have gone better! I wholeheartedly recommend US Mineral Exchange and gladly serve as a reference.read more

    I contacted US Mineral Exchange in hopes to sell my families old mineral rights. Though the claims were too small for their business to sell they had great information for me and my situation. Highly recommend this company!

    US Mineral has been very helpful, leading us through all the steps in selling two different royalties. We gave them plenty of problems to work us through and they were always more than helpful and kind.

    My husband William Ware acquired Mineral Rights through his late Grandmother. We worked with Terra at US Mineral Exchange to begin the decisions to sell our rights. She responded to every question, even ones that to her were probably silly, she did it professionally and with kindness. When it came time to decide if we wanted to take the offer we received from a buyer, she didn't pressure us but gave us educated advise. I can't recommend this company enough!read more
