The Texas General Land Office issues prospect permits and leases on state lands to mine other minerals, such as caliche, sand, gravel, limestone, coal, and sulphur.

Hard minerals underneath state lands and mineral classified lands are explored and leased in different ways, depending upon the type of mineral and type of land.
