(redirected from Mining rights)

mineral rights

The right to take things beneath the soil. One may sell land and mineral rights separately from each other,which works a severance of the interests.In some states,sand,gravel,and clay are not considered minerals, even if they exist below the surface. One frequently contentious issue is whether a grant of mineral rights includes the ability to take them by strip mining or other open-air operations,such as quarrying.(The answer differs from state to state and also depends on the precise language of the deed.)
