Today, Mineral's main industry is tourism, primarily through recreational fishing. Mineral has a post office, two churches, one general store, one tavern, a log lodge (in the National Register of Historic Places) a resort with fishing docks and boat/pontoon rentals and two bed and breakfast facilities.
