What does not owning mineral rights mean?

Mineral rights don’t come into effect until you begin to dig below the surface of the property. But the bottom line is: if you do not have the mineral rights to a parcel of land, then you do not have the legal ability to explore, extract, or sell the naturally occurring deposits below.

What is an unleased mineral owner?

What is the difference between royalty and mineral interest?

How do you value non producing mineral rights?

Are mineral rights a good investment?

Mineral rights to oil, coal, natural gas, or other valuable natural resources can substantially boost your investment portfolio as labor-free sources of revenue or passive income.

What is the difference between royalty interest and mineral interest?

A mineral interest owner also possesses the right to receive lease bonuses, delay rental payments, shut-in payments and royalties. A “royalty interest,” on the other hand, is the property interest created that entitles the owner to receive a share of the production.
