If I own a piece of land do I own it to the centre of the earth?

Excellent question. Haha. You know, I've never thought of it that way before. I'm sure you can't go around drilling to a certain point unless you have permission.0
It depends on if you also own the mineral rights. If you don't then no, anything under the ground belongs to whoever owns the mineral rights.1

it depends on the law of the country... In one country (I forgot the name), if you own the land. You own it about 2-10 or more metres deep, i forgot.0
Within limits imposed by laws. You can't start mining anywhere. No derricks in Manhattan.1
