" GREENLAND voted on Tuesday overwhelmingly in favour of self-rule in a referendum that paves the way for independence from Denmark and gives it rights to lucrative Arctic resources, final results showed."
我不清楚"rights to lucrative Arctic resources"的意思是什麼,,to後面不是應該跟verb嗎?但lucrative是一個adj (賺大錢的；獲利多的),,那這個rights究竟是什麼權利呢?

to之後一般也是跟一個主動詞,舉個極簡淺的例句Does he want to come along ? Does是助動詞(AuxiliaryVerb)而want to come才是主動詞
以是名詞如Please give this to her. ; Do you come to the church with us?
在你的句子中' lucrative(profitable) Arctic resources ' 用作一個名詞片語(Noun Phrase) 即是名詞, 解作' 北極所蘊藏的生財資源(探採權)', 如該處海底石油等。Source(s): nil

If Greenland is independent from Denmark, It has the ownership of some part of the Arctic Circle which has rich/ lucrative resources.
"rights to something/ rights to do something"----->right = moral/ legal claim ------->"to" is a preposition, therefore, a noun is needed after it
e.g. right to a fair trial公平審判的權利
