Natural Resource Partners (NRP) owns approximately 13 million acres of mineral interests and other subsurface rights across the United States. If combined in a single tract, our ownership would cover roughly 20,000 square miles. Our ownership provides critical inputs for the manufacturing of steel, electricity and basic building materials, as well as opportunities for carbon sequestration and renewable energy. We are working to strategically redefine our business as a key player in the transitional energy economy in the years to come. If you wish to view our ownership footprint, talk to NRP about leasing opportunities or to see what we have available, please view the interactive map, below:
NRP does not mine, drill or produce minerals. Instead, we lease our acreage to companies engaged in the extraction of minerals in exchange for the payment of royalties and various other fees. The royalties we receive are generally a percentage of the gross revenue received by our lessees and are typically supported by a floor price and minimum payment obligations that protect us during significant price or demand declines.
