Cursory Title begins at the Railroad commission researching surveys determining if a tract is/has been drilled upon or has been pooled into a producing unit. After confirming no operations are being conducted, the last ten years of title are examined in a prospective area to determine if the tracts are under lease or open to be leased (Lease check). The next step, research begins around 1900 and is a quick and accurate search of mineral ownership to determine all of the undivided owners of record and the current surface owner(s).
