Highlight

The State of North Dakota owned mineral interests under the shore zone of navigable waters upon admission to the Union, and the anti-gift clause of the state constitution precludes construing a statute as a gift of the State's mineral interests to upland owners.
Ownership of mineral interests under the shore zone of navigable waters may differ for individual upland owners.
If the chain of title reflects the State granted its equal footing interests to upland owners, those upland owners take to the low watermark, subject to the public trust doctrine and except where the deed provides otherwise.
