Annual Institute on Mineral Law


As an attorney in charge of all legal matters related to minerals, lands, and the environment for the State, quite a few odd, interesting, and obscure issues come across my desk. This paper is intended to provide a brief review of several of the largely unknown, but fairly important, legal matters that are addressed by the State with respect to mineral matters and to provide guidance to practitioners that should assist in an understanding of these matters for future dealings with the State.
