The good Lord, isn't making any more land so you deal with what you can. I doubt that my land will ever be mined, and not really sure if mineral rights have been sold. However, I don't have the rights. It will take a lot of title searching to find who retained them. And by now, one would have to find heirs and such. In reality it should never affect me one way or another. I have a major creek on one side of my property, another creek is on the other side of the hill. They will not mine within a good distance of the creeks so any recovery of coal would probably not be worth the cost.

Being within 5 miles of Canaan Valley resort the property is worth a bit, but not quite seven figures. We purchased it when the proposed Mt. Porte Crayon ski resort fell through and the property parcels that were purchased for it went on the market. We lowballed and the European interests that owned it accepted the offer.

Here's a couple of sites:

https://www.mapwv.gov/parcel/
can search for parcel number and get current owners. Once you have the parcel, map and legal description of the property then you can ask the clerk's office for current mineral rights ownership.

This might help to see where active drilling is:
http://tagis.dep.wv.gov/oog/

I believe the oil companies have access to a database of current owners. I haven't found a public web portal for that yet. I'm sure if you called a landman and asked them to look it up for you they would. Some WV counties have their ownership records digitized and searchable. Tyler County does not. The last landman I dealt with said the oil companies went to the County admin and offered to digitize their records for free and they were turned down.

Thanks Jim, I have been using all that type of info in each of the 100 or so properties I have considered. I was explaining to the wife what a relief it was to finally find a decent piece of property. I was probably spending at least 16 hours a week for years looking at property. This property is in Eastern Marion county, They have online records if you want to pay. Not sure how good the records are but its way cheaper to go to courthouse and search. I had been looking in Harrison county mostly and had online deeds, as eastern Marion was too expensive. As I searched, property that looked nice enough to investigate, was sold, that's in a matter of hours.

I moved some money around so I could pay cash. I found that cash ruled, no one wanted to wait for a loan. The other thing was that Realtors get the best deals. Someone walks into the office and has property to sell and a realtor buys it. There is also a lot of old school deals, friend of a friend and such. i hope to add 40 acres real soon this way.
