However, it’s just as important to understand the process of how it works and what to expect should you choose to sell your mineral rights. 

Keep reading to learn more about mineral rights and how they work. 

What Exactly are Mineral Rights? 

Mineral rights allow those who own them to have ownership of the piece of land and explore, develop, and extract those minerals. 

The mineral interest owner can choose to excavate hard rock minerals like gold and copper or even drill an oil and gas well. The owner of mineral rights on a property can lease or sell them as gifts, or they may choose to pass them down from generations. 

Four Types of Mineral Rights 

Today, the common practice for mineral rights is to separate mineral rights on the property from the actual land itself. The four major types of mineral rights are as follows: 

  • Surface rights: Surface rights provide ownership rights to the minerals that are found on the surface only. This does not include rights to those found on the subsurface. 
  • Mineral rights: Mineral interests provide ownership of the mineral interests that are under the ground. Owners can receive royalty, lease, and shut-in payments. These are commonly applied in the oil and gas industry. 
  • Royalty Rights: Someone who owns oil and gas royalty rights is an investor who earns a stream of royalty payments on their mineral rights investment. 
  • Oil and Gas Rights: Given the fluidity of oil and gas, it can be difficult to define the rights by geographical area. So the rights for such is referred to as the rule of capture. If someone has rights to drill into a property, they subsequently have rights to the oil underneath as well.
