Please define mineral rights?
Minerals-- In Real Estate terms, those minerals of value which may be taken by mining, such as coal, iron, copper, gold, silver, etc Mineral rights as well as oil rights, may be sold or leased separately from the land itself.
The ownership of the minerals (coal, gold, iron, etc.) under the ground with or without ownership of the surface of the land is known as mineral rights. Mineral rights don't always transfer with the sale of acreage. In some circumstances the seller may "reserve" the mineral rights. This is also possible with timber.
