Land registration – guidance

Registration of mines and minerals (PG65)

This guide deals with the registration of mines and minerals under the Land Registration Act 2002 (practice guide 65).


The guide does not seek to be a general guide to the law concerning mines and minerals and it is aimed at conveyancers and you should interpret references to ‘you’ accordingly. Land Registry staff will also refer to it.

Updated: June 2014

This edition of the guide replaces the February 2014 edition. Section 4 has been amended (and other consequential amendments made) to explain a change in policy for applications which are not first registrations, under which we will need only certified copies of deeds or documents you send to us with Land Registry applications. All documents submitted, including originals, will be scanned and destroyed.
