Located just outside of Voca, Texas is where you will find this great, diverse property.
This area of McCulloch County is great looking Texas Hill Country. While comprised mainly of mesquites, this ranch boasts many types of trees including LOTS of Live Oaks, some Post Oaks, very few cedar (juniper), as well as various other types of brush. Excellent habitat for the numerous wildlife species that call this ranch home.
MINERALS: All owned minerals (believed to be 100%) will convey with the sale. A large portion of the property has been tested for Frac sand, and it has been determined there are minable deposits here. This sand is used for the "fracking" of oil and gas wells. The popularity of this process has exploded in recent years with advancing technology, making the investment potential of this property all the more attractive. Currently there are mining operations on two sides of the property, and it is under a lease agreement as well. The current lease has an annual revenue of $12,000. Speculators will appreciate the possible substantial revenue produced by the mining of this sand. This is the greatest value of the property.
IMPROVEMENTS: Ranch house is a nice 3 bedroom/1 bath with an attached shop. The shop has electric and AC. Currently there are tenants living in the house which could be a source of income for the new owners. There is a 56' x 48' (per owner) pole barn located near the house and a set of cattle pens. Water is supplied to the house from a well.
WATER: Definitely not the norm here! Through an agreement with the adjoining sand mine, water is pumped through a 5" line into the main stock tank on the ranch. The current owner claims this water never stops! This combined with 3 wells on the place makes it possible to irrigate three fields. In the past these fields have been used to produce hay, wheat, peanuts, etc. The wells are fairly shallow and reach the Hickory Aquifer which is a pretty big deal in this area. There are a total of 8 earthen tanks, although not all hold water year round. Loafer Creek (seasonal) runs through the west side of the property. According to the owner, topaz gems have been found here along with many artifacts.
WILDLIFE: McCulloch County is well known for great hunting, and this area is no exception. The deer hunting can be excellent, with a buck scoring in excess of 140" being considered a real trophy. According to the owner, there has been at least one over 140" taken as well as numerous bucks scoring over 130". The Spring Turkey hunting can be good at times as well. Also available are wild hogs, good dove hunting, ducks, and even the occasional axis deer.
GENERAL: This is just a great all-around property. For those looking for a place to "get-away", here you go. Interested in great hunting or livestock production?...you got it. But the biggest attribute that simply cannot be ignored is the sand mining potential. Currently there is income being generated from the sand mining lease ($12,000/year), there is a hunting lease in place (current hunters would like to stay on the ranch), and income from the ranch house tenants. The Seller will also like to lease back the grazing rights after the sale of the property. All of these income "buckets" should combine into a nice package to help lower the carrying costs for an investor who is considering the mining production available.
