About Us

Founded by Arlo Richardson in 1981, Mineral Resources, Inc. was a pioneer of the lower GOR window of the DJ Basin. 

As our company grew, we and our affiliates engaged in the acquisition, permitting, development and operations of oil and gas leases and wells. In 2004, Mineral Resources began assembling a leasehold position in the core of the DJ Basin in and around the town of Greeley, Colorado.

Over-time, the position grew to include 10,000+/- acres and 10,000+/- leases. Within this legacy position, Mineral Resources successfully drilled and operated 100+ vertical and horizontal wells targeting the Codell and Niobrara formations.

Mineral Resources was founded on a set of core values: family, service, foresight, imagination, and persistence. Above all else, these values continue to guide our actions while simultaneously leaving a lasting, positive impact in the communities which we live and work.

What we do
Acquisition of oil & gas leases

Mineral Resources has a long history of taking oil and gas leases and is still actively engaged in the leasing process.  We work with owners to ensure clean title, initiate curative work, and conduct extensive economic analysis to facilitate fair transactions.  The relationships we build with the owners we take leases with are paramount to our company’s success.  

Production of Oil and Gas Leases

As both an operator and non-operator, Mineral Resources invests in core assets.  An integration of top tier integrated software systems allow us to produce high quality financial reporting. 

Development of Oil and Gas

Specializing in urban drilling, the coordination between regulatory bodies, municipalities and citizens is paramount to our organization.  Mineral Resources genuinely cares about the communities where we live and work.

Purchase Mineral Rights

Since its formation, Mineral Resources has purchased minerals and overrides in highly productive areas.  We take pride in making sure we pay the fair market value for any purchase made.


Mineral Resources has created long-standing relationships with its investors by providing creative and disciplined deal structures and performing as promised. As we grow our family office, we continue to welcome more partners in our continued expansion.
