I am aware of some members recently receiving mail solicitations for the purchase of their minerals with enclosed mineral deed.  That may or may not be in violation of the law (I don't have a copy of the letter at this time) but it reminds me to re-post the text of Act 179 for the benefit of anyone who may receive a letter covered by the law.  Click on the link in blue under the discussion title and introduction above.
