Highlight

When interpreting a statute, it must be presumed the legislature intended all that it said, said all that it intended to say, and meant what it has plainly expressed.
The recording of a lease executed by one who is the legal owner, but not the record owner, of a mineral interest constitutes a use of the mineral interest which will preclude forfeiture of the mineral interest under the abandoned mineral statutes.
