Mineral resources in Wyoming include locatable minerals such as gold, silver, uranium, etc., mineral materials such as sand, gravel, aggregate, building stone and landscape boulders, and leasable minerals such as trona.  

   …other than coal and oil shale

Chlorides, sulfates, carbonates, borates, silicates or nitrates of potassium or sodium, along with phosphate and related minerals are leasable minerals and are administered per the 43 CFR Part 3500 regulations. Hardrock minerals which are normally classified as locatable are administered under Part 3500 when they occur on acquired lands.

The most notable solid leasable mineral in Wyoming is trona.
