News Release: Mineral Rights Workshop

Indiana Farm Bureau will host Mineral Rights: Knowing Your Rights Underground, for those interested in learning more about the laws and regulations affecting mineral extraction.

“Although Indiana has a long history of mineral extraction, some recent developments have increased the need for landowners to carefully evaluate and understand the agreements they enter into,” said Mark Thornburg, director of IFB’s legal affairs team.

The seminar, held Thursday, August 2 at Vincennes University, will offer landowners a look at regulations, land leasing tips, and how to protect personal rights among other topics. Shale gas development activity, coal bed methane considerations, and carbon dioxide and natural gas storage opportunities will all be covered.

The program will be focused towards the interest of landowners; however, attorneys who represent landowners may find the information beneficial. In addition, continuing legal education credits are being sought for the program.

The Indiana Agricultural Law Foundation and CountryMark Cooperative are seminar partners.
Cost of the program is $10. For more information contact Maria Spellman at 317-692-7840. Visit www.infarmbureau.org, under the Events menu to register.
