Welcome to CKX Lands, Inc.

CKX Lands, Inc. is a Louisiana corporation organized in 1930 as Calcasieu Real Estate & Oil Co., Inc., to receive non-producing mineral royalties spun off by a southwest Louisiana bank. Over the years, as some of the royalties yielded oil and gas income, the Company used the proceeds to purchase land. On May 17, 2005, the Company changed its name from Calcasieu Real Estate & Oil Co., Inc. to CKX Lands, Inc. The primary reason for the change was to help clarify that the Company is not directly involved in oil and gas exploration or operations. As used herein, the "Company" or "CKX" refers to CKX Lands, Inc.

The Company owns land and mineral interests and collects income through its ownership in the form of oil and gas royalties, surface leases for farming, right of way and other uses, and timber sales. The Company is not involved in the exploration or production of oil and gas nor does it actively farm its lands or manage its timber. These activities are performed by others for royalties and management fees.

CKX Lands, Inc.'s office is located at 2417 Shell Beach Drive, Lake Charles, LA 70601 and our mailing address is PO Box 1864, Lake Charles, LA 70602. Our phone number is (337) 493-2399 and our email is admin@ckxlands.com.

CKX LANDS ANNOUNCES APPOINTMENT OF GRAY STREAM AS PRESIDENT AND TREASURER

LAKE CHARLES, La. (July 16, 2020) — CKX Lands, Inc. (NYSE American: CKX) ("CKX" or the "Company"), today announced that Gray Stream has been appointed its president and treasurer, effective July 15, 2020. Lee Boyer is retiring from the position but has been appointed secretary, and he will also provide transition services to CKX as Stream assumes his new role. Both Stream and Boyer will continue as directors.

"I greatly appreciate the confidence that the board of directors has placed in me, and I am extremely excited about this opportunity," said Stream. "CKX has long been a thoughtful and dedicated steward of its land and natural resources, and I will continue that approach. Additionally, I look forward to developing and evaluating various strategic options intended to maximize long-term shareholder value."

Gray Stream is the president of Matilda Stream Management, which manages a diverse set of operating businesses, investments, and assets—including land and natural resources nearly identical to CKX's holdings. Additionally, Stream has built and acquired successful businesses in a variety of industries. He has been a long-time director of CKX and previously served as chair of the audit committee for several years.

Stream has agreed to a compensation plan that is 100% stock-based, and heavily weighted towards ambitious performance metrics. "The board of directors is very pleased to appoint Gray to this position," said chairman of the board Michael White. "He is already a major shareholder, and he has agreed to take the position without receiving cash compensation. This represents a uniquely strong alignment with shareholders. We are excited about the resources that Gray can leverage for CKX's benefit," added White.

This announcement will be posted on the Company's website at www.ckxlands.com and on the Company's Twitter feed on @CkxInc.

CKX LANDS ANNOUNCES INTERNET ACCESS TO ANNUAL MEETING PROXY MATERIALS DUE TO COVID-19 PANDEMIC

LAKE CHARLES, La. (April 9, 2020) - CKX Lands, Inc. (NYSE American: CKX) today announced that the third-party facility that prints and mails to the Company's shareholders its annual meeting proxy materials has been forced to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the Company will not be able to mail a full set of annual meeting materials to all of its shareholders for its annual meeting of shareholders to be held on May 7, 2020. Instead, for certain shareholders, the Company will rely on rules that allow it to mail a notice to shareholders giving the internet address where shareholders may access the annual meeting materials on-line. The Company began mailing this notice today.

The Company is taking this action under a statement of the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission issued on April 7, 2020 that provides guidance to issuers, shareholders, and other market participants affected by COVID-19 with meeting their obligations under the federal proxy rules.

The CKX Lands, Inc. annual meeting of shareholders will be held on Thursday, May 7, 2020 at One Lakeside Plaza, 4th Floor, 127 W. Broad Street, Lake Charles, Louisiana 70601, at 10:00 a.m., central time. Shareholders may access the annual meeting proxy and proxy statement and the Company's 2019 annual report to shareholders at:

www.envisionreports.com/ckx

Shareholders of record will also be able to complete on-line and electronically sign a proxy to vote their shares by visiting that site and entering their unique control number that is printed on the notice they will receive in the mail. Shareholders holding their shares through a broker or bank will receive voting instructions from their broker or bank.

Please note that the number of persons admitted entry to the annual meeting may be limited under any local, state or federal government restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic that are in effect on the meeting date. So that their votes will be counted, shareholders are urged to complete, sign, date and submit a proxy rather than depending on attending the meeting and voting in person.

This announcement will be posted on the Company's website at www.ckxlands.com and on the Company's Twitter feed on @ckxlnc.
