Prima facie 'land' or 'lands' includes everything on or under the surface1, although this meaning has in some cases been held to have been restricted by the context2. 'Soil' is apt to denote the surface and everything above and below it3, but similarly its meaning may be restricted by the context so as to exclude the mines4. 'Subsoil' includes everything from the surface to the centre of the earth
