What does Federal Mineral Estate mean?

What does “Federal Mineral Estate” mean?

For example, in Johnson County, Wyoming, I can toggle “federal mineral estate” on and off and this area appears in dark gray.

What does it mean for the mineral owners in that section?

Curious who you represent or are contracted to? Happy to help - i’m here in Johnson County. Jason

I don’t actually represent anyone. I’m just a mineral owner myself and am learning by researching stuff I see in tax sales, auctions and random stuff I run across while exploring online. I do occasionally buy mineral interest in Texas but I know nothing about Wyoming.

I’m just on a hunt for knowledge - I have a lot to learn.


Wyoming manages minerals that the federal government owns.
