What We Buy

Vista Minerals is a mineral royalty acquisition company focused on acquiring mineral rights across the United States. We buy mineral interest (MI), royalty interest (RI), or overriding royalty interest (ORRI) from family trusts, individuals, and organizations. We pride ourselves on offering the best possible valuations for our clients while being courteous, fast, and helpful.

Mineral Interest (MI)

A mineral interest is the legal ownership of minerals beneath a property's surface. It gives the owner the right to any minerals that may be present, including the ability to enter leases with extraction companies. Often, mineral interest ownership is separate from surface ownership. Mineral interest ownership does not include any rights to the surface use of the land.

Royalty Interest (RI)

A royalty interest is leased minerals, which gives the owner the right to receive a percentage of the revenue from selling the extracted minerals. The owner of a royalty interest is not responsible for any of the maintenance or costs associated with the operations of mineral extraction in return for a smaller fraction of the production value. The percentage can range from 18% to 25%, as stipulated in the royalty agreement.

Overriding Royalty Interest (ORRI)

An overriding royalty interest is an agreement to a percentage of profits from production. Unlike royalty or mineral interest, it doesn't include ownership of the minerals. It is merely an entitlement to a share of the revenue from production for a specified term, typically expiring after production ceases.
