    If someone owns a piece of land, do they own it all the way to the center of the earth?

    This probably only applies to the UK:

    I did a course in English Common Law some years ago, and learned that we can only buy an interest in the land - it actually belongs to the State.

    nope. They might not even own the mining rights to it.  Depends on the title, but in most cases if there is something under the land that has some economic benefit, the rights may be given to a company to exploit it; depends on how deep.
