Minerals Management Bureau

Mineral Leasing

The Minerals Management Bureau is responsible for reviewing and processing all mineral lease and permit applications; advertising, competitively bidding, and issuing new leases; reviewing and approving lease assignments; and collecting, verifying, and posting lease rentals and production royalties.

Other Mineral Leasing

The Minerals Management Bureau also administers a wide variety of leases - including metalliferous and non-metalliferous leases, coal leases, gravel permits and leases, and land use licenses for non-mechanized prospecting - for all other mineral activity on state trust land. Royalties and rentals are also collected for minerals such as bentonite, clay, gold and associated minerals, peat, and shale.
