Mistal, Inc.

Brief  History of Mistal, Inc.

Tamco Inc was formed in 1970 by Tennessee River Pulp and Paper (TRPP) when TRPP made a decision to sever all of their minerals from their land. In 1974 the corporate name was changed to MISTAL Inc. Mistal owns over 78,000 net mineral acres of minerals in Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee. Controlling interest was acquired by a small group of investors from Louisiana, Sid Moreland, Bob McCormick and Ray Smith. Much of this acreage lies within the Black Warrior Basin.

The mineral acreage in Lamar County, Marion County, Franklin & Winston Counties, Alabama has potential for surface mining the very valuable high quality low-sulphur coal seams that lie near the surface.

Mistal owns a large block of Floyd-Neal Shale acreage in Clay, Chickasaw, Webster, and Calhoun Counties MS that is currently being explored by Anadarko, Cabot and XTO.
