82. Mineral Rights – some people luck into mineral rights by owning land that ends up having oil, natural gas, or some valuable mineral underneath.

They allow someone else to extract the minerals for a fee.

Others systematically buy the mineral rights from many landowners.

In order to drill for natural gas, the energy company must first acquire mineral rights from the landowner.
