Members of chambers act in disputes involving mineral rights, including the property-related issues arising out of the terms of mineral leases.
Recent examples of our experience include:
- Star Energy v Bocardo - a landmark decision in the Supreme Court concerning how far the title of a surface owner extended below the surface where deviation wells had been drilled
- Alan Coleman v Ibstock Brick Ltd - a dispute over the terms of a mineral conveyance
- Homepace Ltd v Sita South East Ltd - a case regarding a surveyor's mineral exhaustion certificate on the economic recoverability of minerals from a quarry
