158.     Measure of compensation.

The compensation payable is that part of the entire value of the minerals1 which is proportionate to the interest of the mine owner2, and the difficulty of assessment in such cases is immaterial3. The compensation payable is full compensation4, namely what the minerals would have sold for, if worked, less the cost of working them5, although interest is not payable between the date of the notice of intention to work6 and the date of assessment of compensation7.
