Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
You would need to make application to probate will as muniment of title.Once the court approves the will , the order here reflects the legal heirs and owner of the mineral rights.That is a much simplified proceeding here and one time hearing.You would need a local probate lawyer there in Wyoming.
This is called probate of foreign will in Wyoming, thanks.
It is considered ancillary administration, here is the law for reference to the process. Here once will is admitted the personal representative deeds you the minerals by fiduciary deed.This is a pretty short and quick process.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Please let me know if you have more follow up.Thanks again.

This is something that should be able to be completed in 30-45 days tops.It is not complicated but much simplified ancillary probate and fiduciary deed.The lawyer can do this in one hearing, the personal representative may have to travel once for hearing.
