Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
Here it depends on whether your father inherited the minerals, which makes it separate property or marital property if he purchased it during marriage.In Texas where the laws of intestacy are applied here is a pie chart that explains who gets what.
If it is separate real estate, then she gets a 1/3 life estate, you get the rest here.2/3 now plus 1/3 when she deceases.
If this was marital you can see here the split as well.
You are likely going to have to open ancillary probate here in Texas to have these awarded to you by the county probate court here in Malone , Texas.You will need a local lawyer to open probate here.
