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.

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.

We have two types of listings available to help you sell mineral rights for the best price:

Auction Listing – Our auction listings are for just 7 to 14 days.  If you have an offer in hand you are seriously considering, an auction listing is a quick way to get a better offer and ensure a smooth closing process.  Learn more about our auction listings.

Standard Listing – Our standard listings run for 30 days.  These listings are ideal if you don’t have an offer in hand or you are not in a rush to sell.  Learn more about our standard listings.

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.

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

Great people. Smooth process. Quick closing. Highly recommend. US Mineral Exchange also got me a fair value when other companies were trying to lowball me. I will use them again if the need ever arises.

I inherited mineral rights that have been in the family for decades. I enjoyed the monthly income but remained mostly ignorant of the whole oil/gas industry. Out of the blue I got an unsolicited offer to buy them which seemed an attractive option I had never looked into. I immediately ended up "down the rabbit hole" of how confusing this would be. In my on-line search for information I found US Mineral Exchange. After careful evaluation of the whole situation I engaged them as my broker, to list my minerals for sale. They helped me settle on a buyer, and they negotiated a purchase agreement that protected my interests better than I ever could have done on my own. During all the complicated and uncertain parts of closing the deal, I felt assured that Garrett and Eric and Terra were looking out for me and keeping me informed of the progress. The deal is now closed, the money is in the bank! I'm confident I got top dollar for my minerals, and having experienced industry professionals on my side kept me from worrying through the entire process. I am so glad I hired US Mineral Exchange.read more

After some research on how to sell the family mineral rights in North Dakota I was impressed with the US Mineral Exchange website. An initial contact with Terra got me started gathering documents to use to post the sale on the website. About one week after posting, Garrett suggested we request a best and final offer. Within a couple of days I had a final offer and we completed the deal, after exchanging paperwork, which took a couple more days. The service was fast, excellent and beyond my expectations. We received more for the rights than an offer I had received and more than I had expected. Terra and Garrett at the US Mineral Exchange were great at walking me through the process, answering my questions, and guiding me through the paperwork. I would recommend the US Mineral Exchange to anyone who is interested in selling their mineral rights.read more

Eric and Garrett were phenomenal in walking my family and I through the process of selling our mineral rights and essentially made it an effortless and painless experience. Whenever I had a question, they were quick to respond, very informative, and were both well above expectations in regard to their professionalism. I walked in to this process (even after extensive research) with an unsettling feeling not knowing much about how mineral rights were valued, how complicated or not the process of selling was from start to finish, and whether or not I was taking the right approach. Needless to say, my experience with them and the US Mineral Exchange before, during, and after the process alleviated that unsettling feeling swiftly. To anyone who is uncertain about this process as I was, rest assured that there are great safeguards in place through the US Mineral Exchange to protect you, your mineral rights, and is completely risk, and obligation free to pursue. This process is much easier and efficient in comparison to dealing with letters and phone calls from buyers on a case by case basis which can be tedious, stressful, and raises too many questions. The first obviously was "Is this the most I can get for my mineral rights?". This process through the US Mineral Exchange drives competition from many potential buyers which will maximize and define true value. I ended up selling my rights for 163% more than the highest offer letter I received over the course of the last 10 years. In conclusion, any potentiial seller who is even a tad curious, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain, and the best part is, it didn't cost one cent out of my pocket to sell or inquire about selling. Thank you Eric and Garrett for making this experience great, and effortless.read more
