Why Sell Mineral Rights at US Mineral Exchange
As you begin the process of selling mineral rights, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. There are so many different options available to mineral owners that it’s hard to know where to begin. Finding accurate information from a trusted source can be difficult. In addition, you want to make sure you don’t get taken advantage of.
At US Mineral Exchange, our company was founded with a simple goal. To help provide mineral owners with the resources they need to sell mineral rights for maximum value. We watched mineral owners get taken advantage of for years and wanted to provide a service that levels the playing field. In the past, mineral owners would sell far below market value because they didn’t have access to a large network of mineral rights buyers. With little information available they were forced to accept whatever offer they received and hope they got a fair deal.
Today mineral owners are trusting US Mineral Exchange to help them through the process of selling mineral rights. US Mineral Exchange is the #1 mineral marketplace in the United States for the individual mineral owner. We attribute our success to placing the mineral owners interests above our own and focusing our efforts completely on maximizing value for you.

Mineral Owner Education
When US Mineral Exchange started in 2012, there was almost no information available to help mineral owners. Fast forward years later and not a lot has changed. There is still little to no accurate information online to help mineral owners.
Over the years we have spent significant time building our blog as a resource for mineral owners. We want to help you better understand your ownership. We want to help you make an informed decision about your mineral rights. We want to help you understand the common traps that mineral owners fall into. Most of all, we want to ensure that you don’t get taken advantage of and sell far below market value like so many mineral owners do.
Our blog is the only resource you will find online that provides you with accurate information about mineral rights ownership.
We have numerous articles that cover important topics. Check out the popular content links on your left (desktop) or further below (mobile). If you want an “all in one” resource, check out our mineral rights guide.
Mineral Rights Buyers
One of the main reasons that mineral owners partner with US Mineral Exchange is because of our large mineral buyer network. A large buyer network is important because it allows buyers to compete against one another to pay you the highest possible price. This creates a huge advantage for mineral owners because they are no longer forced to accept a below market offers. They can evaluate multiple offers and get fair market value.
It’s also important to point out that US Mineral Exchange only works directly with true end buyers. It’s not uncommon for many “mineral buyers” to flip your property to someone else. They will get you to agree to sell mineral rights for $1,000/acre, then turn around and sell your property to someone else for $2,000/acre and make a huge amount of money! When you sell mineral rights you want to be working directly with a true end buyer who plans to keep your property long term. These are the buyers who pay fair market value for your property.
So what does this all mean for you?
Large Buyer Network: You will get competing offers from buyers all over the country driving up prices and putting more cash in your pocket.
Qualified End Buyers: You can feel confident that you are working with only the best buyers in the industry.
No Flippers: Since we only work directly with end buyers, you won’t be taken advantage of by someone flipping your property for a huge profit.
Most mineral owners are not familiar with the process of selling mineral rights. Mineral buyers know this and some will take advantage of you. As a mineral owner it is virtually impossible for you to know every trick a mineral buyer uses to buy mineral rights below market value.
During the closing process, mineral buyers have created a number of ways to take advantage of you. These include:
Creating short deadlines so you make a quick decision
Adding extremely long “title curative” periods which they use to flip your property
Including an all encompassing deed which gives them mineral rights you did not intend to sell
Creating a PSA that gives them the ability to unilaterally adjust the price at closing
+ MANY MANY more
The number of ways a mineral rights buyer can take advantage of you at closing is nearly endless. After spending years helping mineral owners sell mineral rights, our company knows the types of tricks mineral buyers will use. We’ll stand beside you during the closing process to ensure your interests are protected.
Our closing process is clearly defined to help ensure your interests are protected.
