Mineral Rights

Published by at 7:15 am under General Information

Did you know that every state permits separation of surface rights and mineral rights in some form?  And as a result of early homesteading acts, the U.S. Government may hold rights to coal under your land.  Previous owners may have also retained interest in oil and gas development. 

The Colorado Coalition of Land Trusts has produced a great handbook regarding mineral rights.  Directed primarily to impact on Conservation Easements, the handbook contains a wealth of information including how to search your mineral rights, impacts of mineral development, sample surface use agreements and much more.  This valuable handbook is now available from CCLT for only $15.  To order yours, see their website at www.cclt.org
