Highlight

If a grantor does not own a large enough mineral interest to satisfy both a grant and a reservation of the mineral interest, the grant must be satisfied first because the grant is superior to the reservation.
In analyzing conveyances and reservations of mineral interests, the focus is on what the grantor purported to convey to the grantee in the granting clause.
