Under 5301.53(E) Regarding mineral rights, is coal protected from abandonment if other minerals are abandoned?
Hi,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you with your legal question.

Coal is protected from abandonment, as stated in 5301.56, which reads as follows:

(B) Any mineral interest held by any person, other than the owner of the surface of the lands subject to the interest, shall be deemed abandoned and vested in the owner of the surface of the lands subject to the interest if the requirements established in division (E) of this section are satisfied and none of the following applies:

(1) The mineral interest is in coal, or in mining or other rights pertinent to or exercisable in connection with an interest in coal, as described in division (E) of section 5301.53 of the Revised Code. However, if a mineral interest includes both coal and other minerals that are not coal, the mineral interests that are not in coal may be deemed abandoned and vest in the owner of the surface of the lands subject to the interest.
