What is a mineral interest?

I need to define mineral interest.


Answer by  leroy (231)

Mineral interest is commonly referred to as mineral rights. This is the right to use, extract, or collect royalties on the use or extraction of minerals present within a property.

One option you have when you sell physical tracts of land is to sell the land to be used or devloped but to retain the rights to any minierals found on the property. So say someone else can build their house on that land, but if they find gemstones in the soil, you have the rights to mine the land.

When you have a mineral interest in land, you own the rights to any minerals that lay beneath the surface of the ground and the reasonable means necessary to harvest.

The mineral interest can be defined in several ways. Firstly, it can be defined as the amount of deposit that has been left inside of the mineral. This can range from anywhere to 5 to 100 grams depending on how big the mineral is in the first place. Hope that helps.
