9. Ownership of any real and immovable mining right is separate from ownership of the soil involved.
Use of the soil, before or after a mining right is granted, by a third person does not in any case confer a right to compensation on the holder of the mining right. The same applies to the transfer or granting of rights in lands in the domain of the State.
This section is declaratory.
