Minerals Estates Management

Mineral Estates Management has been at the heart of our services for over 100 years. We manage a large portfolio of mineral and waste management interests on behalf of landowners large and small throughout the UK.

Our services include inspecting and managing properties  to ensure operators are working in accordance with their contractual and planning requirements. We also audit and calculate royalty payments and review rents and royalties in line with lease agreements whether by index or through open market determination.

Our Chartered Mineral Surveyors negotiate new mineral and waste management leases, licences, sales and option agreements on behalf of both landowners and mineral operators and we provide advice and guidance to both in respect of all aspects of such transactions. We also have many years experience in advising on severed mineral rights and manorial titled estates.

As we appreciate how ownership drivers can differ, we offer a bespoke mineral estates management service to suit the client ranging from more informal ad-hoc reviews of operations though to full management instructions taking responsibility for all aspects of monitoring a mineral or waste management operation throughout its life.

We have experience in managing interests in:

  • Sand and gravel
  • Limestone, granite and other hard rock extraction sites
  • Brick clay, marl, shale and fireclay
  • Coal and other carboniferous interests
  • Specialist industral minerals
  • Landfill sites
  • Waste recycling facilities
  • Landfill gas
  • Waste management technologies and waste to energy
  • Wayleave interests in respect of all of the above
