I don't think you have to do anything.
Do they still own them?
If so and there is drilling they will contact your great grandparents to sign a lease.

it is very possible if they owned them at one time, they might have sold them with a property or sold them separately without the property.

If it is your great grandparents, there is a real possibility they never owned them as at one time the state owned most mineral rights.

Thank you for the question but could you clarify what you mean by what are you to expect, that is really broad?

Thank you

This sounds like a job for an attorney, and none of here can offer you legal advice.

Best of luck!

First of all, read over the agreement that your great grandparents have. If you do not understand it, you might contact the company itself or find yourself a consultant who will be able to help you understand the paperwork.

You need refer to the agreement signed by your grandparents.
