Highlight

If a mineral owner who owns a mineral interest subject to an outstanding royalty interest executes a mineral deed with a warranty clause to a party conveying mineral acres or interests in oil, gas and other minerals in and under without any reference to the outstanding royalty interest, the retained mineral interest of the mineral owner alone bears the outstanding royalty if the interest is large enough to satisfy the royalty interest.
Decisions are pronounced by a majority of the Supreme Court.
Although the existence or absence of waiver is generally a question of fact, the issue becomes a question of law if reasonable persons could draw only one conclusion from the circumstances.
