MINERALS EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR
To date, Darin Zanovich is the only Executive to be a part of two larger scale ($100mm+) private equity exits in the minerals & royalties space.

In October 2018, Darin then co-founded Mesa Minerals Partners LLC, a Quantum Energy Partners backed mineral and royalty company focused in the Haynesville shale play until their successful exit in December 2020 to Franco Nevada for $135 million. Earlier this year in May 2021, Darin then launched Mesa Minerals Partners II LLC (“Mesa II”) with an initial $150 million equity commitment from NGP Natural Resources XI, L.P. and NGP Royalty Partners, L.P. with a focus on the acquisition of large, aggregated mineral and royalty portfolios across all the major shale basins in the US and also a ground-game strategy of acquiring minerals and royalties in the Haynesville shale play in North Louisiana and East Texas.
