We are well versed in the ‘Mining Code’ and have submitted claims under the Mines (Working Facilities and Support) Act and other similar acts incorporating the code. We have also had many years experience dealing with severed mineral titles, manorial titles, copyhold and reserved mineral rights and understand how ownerships can differ considerably from title to title.
We regularly assist infrastructure developers with their Development Consent Order applications for large projects that may affect multiple mineral titles in respect of potential compensation that may result from their scheme.
We also advise utility companies on the veracity of claims made against them whether through wayleave disputes, the CPO process or in advance of development that may affect mineral reserves.
As such claims can reach Tribunal / Court, our Chartered Mineral Surveyors are trained as Expert Witnesses and have many years experience in litigation.
