(765 ILCS 515/6) (from Ch. 96 1/2, par. 9206)
    Sec. 6. The trustee shall enter into negotiations with prospective purchasers of the mineral lease and shall sell a mineral lease covering the interest of the defendant. The terms of the mineral lease shall be in accordance with the findings and judgment of the court. The trustee shall forthwith prepare and file a report of sale of the mineral lease stating the terms of said lease and the payments received therefor and give notice to all parties appearing of record. If the court finds that the sale was in accordance with its judgment, said sale shall be confirmed by court order. All monies paid to the trustee shall be deposited by him in an interest bearing federally insured account, such account to be in the name of and for the benefit of such defendant. Any depository in which such monies are deposited shall have an office in the county where the lands, or some part thereof, are located. All future payments made under the mineral lease shall be paid directly into such account and be held for the use and benefit of the defendant. All payments received by the depository shall be held by the depository until further order of the court, except that the trustee is authorized and directed, without court order, to pay from the proceeds received any real property or other taxes pertaining to such interest. Such defendant or his successor may petition the court, and upon a finding of the court of ownership of such interest, the court shall enter an order directing the release of all funds applicable to the interest, including any accrued interest, to such owner. The depositing of payments to the account for the credit of such defendant or the payment of any taxes by the trustee shall not be construed as any personal act of such defendant within the provisions of the Uniform Disposition of Unclaimed Property Act.
