Wrigleys advise both landowners and developers on the preservation and exploitation of minerals.
Advice in this area is complex arising from the interactions between minerals owners, surface owners, developer and the various Government bodies involved with issuing Licences.

- Shale Gas Schemes (often involving the process known as “fracking”).
