Renewable resources are generally living resources (fish, coffee, and forests, for example), which can restock (renew) themselves at approximately the rate at which they are extracted, if they are not overharvested.
Mineral resources are generally non-renewable and, once a site's non-renewable resource is exhausted, it is considered to be useless for future extraction, barring technological improvements that allow economic extraction from the tailings.
Both extraction of the basic resource and refining it into a purer, directly usable form, (e.g., metals, refined oils) are generally considered natural-resource activities, even though the latter may not necessarily occur near the former.

 Fiscal Reform in Fisheries: Resource Rent
Resource rent is a key concept in fisheries exploitation and management since, on the one hand, it is the driving force behind the widespread overexploitation of fisheries and, on the other, it determines the potential economic and social benefits that may be derived from well-managed fisheries.
Where resource rent is not dealt with explicitly, the incentive for each fisher to attempt to catch fish before others do ensures that such rent is eventually all dissipated - i.e.
If a single person, or company, were to be given control of a fish resource, he or she would be able to charge people to use the resource, in exactly the same way that people do who own apartments or cars for example.

Resource rent is a concept that relates the demand for a natural resource to its scarcity.
It is precisely the presence of this resource rent which, under conditions of open access, leads to an increase in fishing effort until all the resource rent is dissipated.
An understanding of resource rent generation, or of the potential rent associated with a particular resource, is essential to making informed policy decisions that will lead to a productive process that optimizes the use of the resource for society as a whole.

Resource rent is the vertical difference between revenue (shown by the parabola marked R) and costs (shown by the straight line from the origin marked C).
Relatively few estimates of resource rent exist, and one important policy goal must be to develop many more such estimates in the future.
They compare resource rents in mining and fisheries, show how such rents may be calculated and demonstrate the way in which improved fisheries management has enabled the generation of such rents.

 Alanna Hartzok / Citizen Dividents and Oil Resource Rents
Their view is that the resource rent collected from the sale of their natural wealth of oil should be conserved.
Any oil resource rents that they can draw down from the federal government or finagle directly from the oil companies might better be directed towards capping and tapping the dozens of natural gas flares to provide an energy source for the region that will help it transition to renewable energy of wind, solar, and microhydropower.
Land value based resource rent funds, if full ground rent is collected for the people as a whole, promotes land reform and affordable land access for current and future generations in addition to generating funds for public benefits and citizen dividends.

 Stroup and Baden, Property Rights and Natural Resource Management: Library of Economics and Liberty
As a final advantage of management of resources through private property rights, there is a measure of equity in having those people who use a resource (or wish to reserve it for use) pay for it by sacrificing some of their wealth.
This follows directly from the fact that resources are easily mobile, markets provide clear and condensed information on relative values, and each person has the incentive to seek out and fill (and profit from) better uses for each resource.
That is, resource allocation is unchanged to the extent that individual preferences are invariant to the change in wealth caused by different assignments of property rights.

 Herman E. Daly / A Letter to the Russian Duma on Economic Rent
The reason is that there is an opportunity cost involved in using a resource for one purpose rather than another, as a result of scarcity of the resource, even if no one produced it.
Land and resource rents (unearned income) are ideal sources of public revenue.
Not only is land and resource rent the best thing to tax from the point of view of efficiency and equity in a well functioning market, such taxes are also a means for improving the functioning of the market itself by internalizing external costs and benefits.

 Collapsing Economies And National Resource Rents - Print Version
Both Cromwell and Petty saw the need to know the annual value of Ireland's natural resources, but the modern neo-classical economist is all but clueless on the quantum of resource rent within the economy, or for that matter to where it disappears.
The graph provides evidence that the growing quantum of Australia's resource rents and taxes has been at the expense of the net incomes of labour and capital, especially since 1972 where, as a proportion of GDP, taxes have increased by 28%, the nation's rent has escalated 125% and net incomes have declined by 35%.
Replacing taxes with resource rents could also help to keep the lid on skyrocketing land prices which have played such a destructive role in the Australian economy during the second half of the fourth Kondratieff wave.

 [No title]
Ricardian rent (in the extensive case) is earned for goods and services provided by nature due to the scarcity of the “land” or natural resource of a particular quality, the exclusion of use through ownership, and variations in natural productivities between lands.
Granted, ecological resources such as fisheries are more accurately described as potentially renewable as opposed to “indestructible” resources, yet classical economists, including Ricardo, often considered fisheries and agriculture as analogues in the exposition of natural resource economic principles applied to land envisioned to have a characteristic set of natural properties.
Of great interest to natural resource management authorities is to capture at least a portion of economic rent to pay for the necessary management, and potential enhancement, of the resource.

Resource rent from non-renewable resources should be invested in socially and environmentally responsible ways and primarily in the needed transition to renewable energy based economies; and
Oil and other non-renewable resource rent funds should themselves transition towards capturing substantial resource rents from surface land site values (ground rent) and other permanent and sustainable sources of rent, such as hydropower points, electromagnetic spectrum and satellite orbital zones.

 Land Value Taxation And Resource Rent Approach To Financing For Development
Under the current model which commodifies land and resources, land prices become a greater proportion of the costs of production as development proceeds.This primary cause of the widening rich/poor gap demonstrates the law of rent, a concept little understood even within the field of economics.
The Alaska Permanent Fund is an excellent example of the use of resource rents to not only finance government but to provide an ongoing fund for both public investments and cash payments to citizens.
Under the Alaska Constitution, the natural resources of Alaska belong to the residents of Alaska and are to be used, developed and conserved for the maximum benefit of the people.

 East-West Center: Research Publications: Government Decentralization and Resource Rent Revenue Sharing: Issues and ...
These remittances decreased even though revenues to national governments continued apace as a result of continued high international demand for resources and because payment for them was made in foreign exchange, not in depreciated local currency.
However, because the issues surrounding the actual processes of government decentralization and resource rent revenue sharing are relatively new, they are poorly understood.
In the following discussion, the interrelations of the issues surrounding government decentralization and resource rent revenue sharing are addressed in the context of (a) the concept and nature of resource rents, (b) decentralization, (c) the impact of resource development projects, and (d) the impacts of resource rent revenue sharing on national, provincial, and local governments.

A subsidy in the current period that will not exist in the future, leads to a big increase in production and decrease in price today (compared to question #1), and a decrease in production and higher prices in the future (compared to question #1).
  Although prices increase by about 33% between periods, the resource rent only grows at 5% because cost increases in the future (when the subsidy is dropped) reduce any growth in rents (p-mc) from  rising prices.
  The resource (scarcity) rent also drops because the resource is more abundant (making a given unit of it less valuable), but it still grows at the market rate of interest.

In the single rent-to-buy decision problem, without a priori knowledge of the amount of time a resource will be used we need to decide when to buy the resource, given that we can rent the resource for $1 per unit time or buy it once and for all for $c.
In this paper we study algorithms that make a sequence of single rent-to-buy decisions, using the assumption that the resource use times are independently drawn from an unknown probability distribution.
We develop a provably optimal and computationally efficient algorithm for the rent-to-buy problem and evaluate its practical merit for the disk spindown scenario via simulation studies.
