With current alternative energy source offerings as weak as they are, it's only a matter of the right political administration coming to power to turbo-charge a strong available energy industry which will, in turn, turbo- charge your financial standing.

You will want to disclose in both your contract (via an addendum) and in your seller's disclosure that you are retaining your mineral rights. Personally, I wouldn't try to use them as a negotiating tool...most buyers are not that interested in the mineral right as they don't understand them anyway. They will simply purchase a home based on it's emotional appeal.
You own a lot of acreage and it could be big money.
You own 1/10 of an acre, then don't complicate things.
There are plenty of people who have retained the rights.
I guess I would look at it from the prospect of you as a buyer.
How do you feel about the property you are buying.....do you want them, do you care if the current owner keeps. Would you pay more or less for the property if they are there or not? Would you pay to have the mineral title searched if no one is sure?
I think it just complicates the transaction in an unneeded way for what is a little money in the scheme of things if you say you want to retain them. These days it is not always easy to sell, so even just putting that idea out in the listing might mean the difference between a sale or not. Are they that important to you?
If they are, they're worth fighting to keep.
