Almost half of the 260 acres near Isabella, Minn., owned by Ron Brodigan and his son could be subject to drilling based on leases the state awarded last spring to companies that search for valuable minerals. Under Minnesota law, landowners have little say in the process and don’t get a cut of the profits, even if they eventually lose their land.
The Williston (N.D.) City Commission is forming a committee to deal with mineral rights. The group will look into how the city will pursue the research of mineral rights and the leasing of city-owned property.
