Good question. I know they own part of the way down because there is a mine here in town (who knew?) that my brother just started working for and he said they pay "rent" to a nearby farmer for having the mine underneath his land.

 Are you referring to mineral rights?  We own our land but if there is any sign of oil then the person owning the mineral rights is allowed to set up on our property.

 No one really "owns" any land in this country.  The taxes we pay on it are more like paying to lease the land.  If the gov't wants it...the gov't WILL take it.  So, no, you don't own it to the core of the earth.  LOL

From what my parents tell me, anybody can buy their mineral rights and they are sol if they want to drill or dig for stuff. You can also buy the air space over your property as well, according to them, but these days I don't listen to them very much.

 Someone owns mineral rights on our land and most people do not give it up ever, lol...at least not around here.
I've heard of air space but don't really know about that one :P
