If I own the land, do I own the mineral rights?

By federal law, owners of mineral rights have the right to extract the minerals, even if that activity changes “surface characteristics”.  It’s important that you know what minerals may be located under your land and who owns the rights to them.  Check your deed, and if you don’t understand it, you may want to contact your attorney or other professional to help you.
