Mineral Rights Attorneys in Virginia, Minnesota

The Trenti Law Firm Serving Northeastern Minnesota With Over 145+ Years of Collective Experience

If you are a landowner, or plan on purchasing land, one common issue that you should be aware of is mineral rights ownership. It is fairly simple to designate who owns the surface of the land; it is more complicated to define who owns what is underneath the surface. In Minnesota, some mineral rights are owned by the state while other minerals are owned by private parties. If you are in a situation where you are unsure of or in dispute about who has ownership, the help of an experienced attorney will prove to be invaluable.

Protecting Your Rights

Ownership of mineral rights in northeast Minnesota, with its extensive iron mining history, can be financially rewarding. Obtaining or establishing your rights to the minerals on your property requires vigilant protection to avoid forfeiture to the state. It is important to understand that in some situations, a severance of rights can occur; which is separating the ownership of the surface property from the ownership of the minerals below the surface. To discover whether or not a severance has occurred, the owner should contact an attorney to examine the title of the property. Mineral rights law can be confusing and complex; hence the advice and representation provided by a knowledgeable attorney will be a great asset to your endeavors.
