Location Coyanosa Draw Ranch formally known as the Alpine High Ranch is part of the historic Townsend Ranch. The Hudgins family was granted this property as payment for building a fence around the huge historic Townsend ownership. The ranch fronts on Highway 67 between Fort Stockton and Alpine, with the entrance just 18 miles south of I-10 and 26 miles from Fort Stockton and its regional amenities. The ranch has a major drainage, Coyanosa Draw, that crosses the property and is adjacent to some of the largest ranches in the Trans Pecos, including the Elsinore and Leoncita Ranches. Center Pivot Irrigation is operating adjacent to the south with 1,000 gal/min wells confirming the amazing groundwater resources. Acreage 12,177.60 Acres Owned and 1,290.83 Acres Leased in Pecos County, Texas. Description Coyanosa Draw Ranch lies over a freshwater aquifer and represents a diverse landscape of deep bottom soils along the broad gravelly flats, limestone hills with commanding views of many of the area mountain ranges, including the Del Norte, Glass and The Davis Mountains. This cow country hunting ranch is very accessible, yet you can hide away in the many interesting secret draws and cover where you will find abundant populations of desert Mule Deer, Elk, dove, and the wily Blue Quail. The ranch has a tremendous road infrastructure and, with just a corner of the ranch located along Highway 67, it is very private but extremely accessible. The topography of the ranch is a broad open valley with several limestone hills, cut by broad wooded draws and elevations ranging from 3,500 feet to 3,100 feet, which makes for a wide variety of soils and a very interesting mix of habitats. The ranch to the south has several center pivot irrigation fields right up to the fence-line, accessing the same aquifer under this ranch, the Hovey Channel. There are several areas where this could be replicated along Coyanosa Draw as there is a huge amount of relatively shallow fresh water, with deep soils. The ranch has a number of windmills and solar wells. Electricity is located at the southwest corner and an excellent submersible water pump produces from only 220 feet. There are several dirt tanks on the ranch with room for many more. Monsoon rains come in the summers, providing for an excellent growing season of a wide variety of Chihuahuan Desert plants, shrubs, and grasses. There is an extensive road network on the ranch and the exterior fences range from new to functional. Several caliche gravel pits will provide significant materials for future needs. The owners have built extensive all-weather caliche roads. There is a great metal barn, as well as a set of pens and a historic rock ruin, and many places to build a new lodge or headquarters. Habitat The landscape consists of one-half foothills to the Glass Mountains and the other half deep-soil bottom land. This ranch lies at an elevation that supports a mix of vegetation from the mid-Chihuahuan Desert such as century plants, Spanish dagger, yucca, agarita, sotol and cholla, with a dominant gramma grass mix and scattered bush/trees, including creosote, mesquite, hackberry, and soap berry. Native grasslands provide excellent forage for livestock as well as habitat for Mule Deer and native birds and mammals. The ranch also has several ridges and hills rich in a diversity of rocks and minerals, including many types of agates. Wildlife This is Chihuahuan Desert grassland and scrubland at its very best. The grasses, forbs and brush provide excellent habitat for game and non-game animals and birds. Mule Deer and Elk are the primary game animals. Coyotes, javelina, bobcats, and badgers are all also present. Blue (Scaled) Quail and Doves are the game birds. Raptors include Golden Eagles and wide variety of hawks, neotropical migratory birds, such as orioles, hummingbirds, warblers, flycatchers, and many others make for a wonderful birding experience. Water The ranch lies over a tremendous freshwater aquifer, both shallow and deep. There are three windmills, one solar pump, two generator pumps, and one electric submersible. Water is distributed to several storage tanks and water troughs for wildlife and livestock. Development of irrigated alfalfa and other wildlife forage could greatly enhance the Deer and Elk populations. The water and soils are there, and with gas wells on the ranch, natural gas pumps could provide the energy needed to develop the irrigated cropland component. Minerals This ranch is located within the newly discovered Alpine High geologic region of West Texas. There are active well sites within eyesight of the ranch today both west and south which used horizontal technology in nontraditional shale zones. Seller has access to 3D Seismic that covers the entire ranch and can be made available with the purchase. The older traditional wells on the ranch have been and are being cleaned up and plugged, leaving clean and orderly remaining production facilities. There is one shut-in well on Section 34 with a two-year lease term and a 1/4th royalty. The remainder of the ranch is unleased. There is also a surface use agreement over the ranch, covering gas and water line rights-of-way and saltwater disposal operations. The Seller owns 25% of the Fee Minerals which includes executive rights and will convey all that they own or approximately 2,269.88 Net Mineral Acres. Additionally, there are also 3,098.10 acres of Mineral Classified state minerals on the ranch. Rarely do you get a chance to own minerals in an area where a single future lease could be an economic game changer. Activity and Current Condition of Oil and Gas Minerals 1) Ranch contains 9,079.5 gross mineral acres total, and Seller (Blackbeard Resources, LLC) has 25% of minerals. Buyer will receive Seller’s mineral interest, which equates to 25% of total, or approximately 2,269.88 net mineral acres. All minerals are currently unleased except for 704 acres around a shut-in gas well. a) The ranch is located in the prolific Delaware Basin and offsets Apache’s Alpine High Play b) The stratum consists of a 6,000’ hydrocarbon column with 3rd Bone Spring, Wolfcamp, Penn., Barnett, and Woodford formations with stacked oil, wet gas, and dry gas potential c) Offset development has drastically increased since Apache announced the play in September 2016 with drilling activity within 5 miles of the ranch’s borders 2) An additional 3,098 net acres are classified as “Mineral Classified” by State of Texas a) Most recent oil and gas lease on mineral classified land was in 2011 on about 3,058 acres for $500/ac, 3-year term and 25% royalty. That lease is now expired, and lands are available for a new lease. b) Mineral classified lands have minerals owned by the State of Texas. Surface owner of the land acts as agent for the State and equally shares the lease bonus and royalty with the State. Buyer will receive all the benefits due to surface owner on mineral classified lands. 3) Historical gas production from wells on Alpine High Ranch minerals is about 8,300,000 MCF, (where 1 MCF = 1,000 cu ft of gas). Productive wells on adjacent lands to the south add another 9,500,000 MCF. The vast majority of gas production is from the Devonian reservoir at depth of about 13,000 ft. 4) The previous owner Abraxas acquired a proprietary 3D seismic survey covering about 39 square miles in 2001. Seller of the ranch will grant a license to this seismic data to a new Purchaser. Abraxas utilized the 3D seismic data to successfully drill horizontal wells on closed structures. Some structures remain untested.

Dos Lomas Ranch is located between Ft. Stockton and Ozona fronting for over 5 miles on the north side of Interstate 10 and its frontage road at Exit 314 just 10 miles as the crow flies south west of Iraan. San Antonio is just 3.5 hours to the east making this an excellent weekend recreation ranch. Acreage 6,004 +/- Acres in Pecos County The name of the ranch comes from two high limestone mountain tops that dominate the views from around the ranch. Broad tops with big valleys creates a combination of easy accessible gentle land with deeper soil and the limestone bluffs, rim country, steep hills, and canyon heads creating a diversity of habitats and landforms. This is a working ranch with exceptional hunting. It’s also loaded with canyons, mountains, caves, and excellent vegetation cover making this a hiker and explorers dream. It has been well managed for decades and is known for its combination of native grass, shrubs, and trees. A combination of three large pastures and two traps with pens and extensive water infrastructure complete this working ranch. Some call this “divide country” as the ranch has tremendous topography with a road infrastructure that allows easy access up on top and across the entire ranch. Flay grassy mesa tops with a natural Playa Lake or “Buffalo Wallow” contrast with the rim rock canyons, broad valleys, wooded steep limestone bluffs. This is Western Edwards Plateau transitioning into the Chihuahuan Deseret a convergence of two biologically-distinct eco-regions in Texas. Dos Lomas is the perfect combination of topography, vegetation, accessibility, scenery, history and romance. The Headquarters is simple but functional with a foreman’s house and owner/hunter camp house. The old historic house burned many years ago but there is an excellent location to build a new owners lodge. There are some outbuildings, barns and pens located at the Headquarters. The owners have worked for decades with the NRCS in cost share programs to improve rangeland and building new fences within the ranch. From yucca and sotol, to hackberry and mesquite woodlands, to persimmon and juniper, the ranch represents a crossroads of diverse habitats. The property’s browse and grasslands are in great condition, a result of responsible grazing methods. Native grasses, forbs, browse, brush, cacti and trees not only provide excellent habitat for gamespecies such as deer, turkey, quail, and dove, but also for non-game species such as Texas horned lizard, neotropical songbirds, fox, ringtail cat, and many other animals.Mule deer, and whitetail deer populations on the Ranch are great. The population is about 50/50 for the two deer types and, within the steep terrain along the canyons, one can also find Aoudad sheep. Wing shooting opportunities for blue quail and mourning dove are tremendous. The ranch has a MLD Level II permit and has been carefully managed over the decades by responsible hunters. The ranch is divided into upper mesa land and lower valley/canyon land. There are 3 wells below the rim with one being a windmill and the other two being submersible with electricity. The submersible in West Pasture is pumped up the rim and supplies water on top. There is also a Windmill on top in the East Pasture. The water is shallow, accessible, prolific, and is high quality, being part of the Edwards-Trinity or Plateau Aquifer. The three wells below the rim are 300 feet in depth with water at 120 feet and the one windmill on top is 600 feet deep. Storage tanks and troughs distribute water around each pasture and at the Headquarters. One water through on top near the pens is supplied by a neighbor’s well. This ranch is adjacent to the Yates Field one of the most prolific Oil Fields in the World which has produced over one Billion Barrels of Oil. There are no active wells or leases on the Dos Lomas Ranch. There are three Mineral Classified Sections and the Sellers will convey 10% of fee minerals owned. The fee minerals conveyed will allow any future surface owner to provide for Surface Protection provisions in any new Lease. There is a 137 KV Transmission Line across the west end of the ranch from the Interstate up and out the top of the ranch. The owners have had interest from both Solar and Wind developers in the past. They will convey all Solar and Wind rights.
