The purpose of parts 6125.8000 to 6125.8700 is to set forth procedures and standards to be followed by the commissioner of natural resources when leasing state-owned lands for the exploring for, mining, and removal of selected industrial minerals. Each lease issued under parts 6125.8000 to 6125.8700 will identify which of the industrial minerals are covered by that particular lease.
Due to the variable nature of mining, selling, and processing various industrial minerals, several of the provisions of each lease will need to be developed within the framework of the model lease form contained in part 6125.8700. Parts 6125.8100 to 6125.8700 prescribe minimum standards as to the term of the lease, rental rates, and royalty rates.
