I found oil 15 feet under my land.. what should I do? : legaladvice
I was trying to dig out this ugly metal pole out of my yard, and realized it went really, really deep after not too long. My curiosity got the best of me and over the course of several years, with the help of a pick axe and a shovel, I dug a slant and I managed to get to the bottom of the pole so I could pull it out. Then I discovered porous rock, i've dug a little to the side and there is still some there.
My question is now, what do I do? Is it worth anything? Do I even own land this deep?
