This article examines s 281 of the Mineral Resources Act 1989 (Qld) and the way that section has been interpreted in the context of assessing compensation for landowners affected by the grant of a mining lease over their land. Section 281 of the Mineral Resources Act 1989 (Qld) is unique in that the heads of compensation as interpreted by the Queensland Courts are focussed on permitting a land owner to recover losses peculiar to the owner. The focus is not on the “loss” of the land but of diminution of its value (both market and non-market based) to the landowner.
