Abstract

This article examines the Mineral Resources Development Act 1995 (Tas), which provides the framework for compulsory mineral tenement leases in Tasmania. It argues that the Act in substance provides a regime of compulsory acquisition over surface land. The sanctity of private ownership, and the presumption against proprietary interference without a valid cause, are balanced with welfare economic arguments.
