NOTE: Only the current owner of the surface rights may purchase the state-owned minerals and allied rights. This application
must be completed in its entirety, signed by the surface owner(s), and submitted to the address listed below. A nonrefundable
application review fee of $400 must be included with the application. Additional fees may be charged based on geologic value
as determined by a Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Geologist, excess parcel fee ($25 per parcel after the first 5

DNR.
There is no guarantee the DNR will be able to release the requested mineral rights.
Rights to aboriginal antiquities on tax-reverted land may only be released for platted property (i.e. lots in a recorded subdivision)
