There are many jurisdictions across Canada and the regulations covering mineral exploration are largely similar, but with regional differences. Normally, ownership of the surface land is separate from ownership of the sub-surface (including mineral rights). So, just because someone owns the surface does not mean they own the sub-surface mineral rights below the land?
Privately owned land includes, among others, farmland, city land, and Aboriginal-owned lands, including Indian Reserves. Access to privately owned lands is prohibited unless consent is given and compensation is paid to the surface rights holders. Nova Scotia laws may vary
