A reference in this Subdivision to a deduction or deductions allowed or allowable under this Subdivision (not including a reference to a deduction or deductions allowed or allowable under a specified provision of this Subdivision) shall, unless the contrary intention appears, be read as including a reference to a deduction or deductions allowed or allowable under the Division for which this Subdivision was substituted.
Where a taxpayer carries on prescribed mining operations on 2 or more mining properties, this Subdivision (other than section 122J ) shall, except to the extent to which a contrary intention appears, be construed as applying in relation to the operations of that taxpayer on and in connexion with each of those mining properties as if it were the only mining property on which the taxpayer carried on prescribed mining operations, and, for the purposes of the application of this Subdivision (other than section 122J ) in relation to a taxpayer in relation to a mining property:
(a) any matters or things relating exclusively to any other mining property on which the taxpayer carried on prescribed mining operations shall be disregarded; and
(b) amounts of expenditure (including expenditure on treatment plant or other plant for use in connexion with operations on 2 or more of the properties on which the taxpayer carried on prescribed mining operations), or other amounts, to which paragraph (a) does not apply shall be apportioned in such manner as the Commissioner considers reasonable.
A reference in a provision of this Subdivision to an amount specified in a notice shall, if another amount is deemed to be specified in that notice in lieu of the amount in fact so specified by virtue of another provision of this Subdivision, be read as a reference to that other amount.
For the purposes of this Subdivision, any amount specified in a notice given to the Commissioner under section 122B in relation to the acquisition from a taxpayer of a mining or prospecting right or mining or prospecting information shall be deemed to be wholly attributable to expenditure incurred by the taxpayer, and the extent to which such an amount is attributable to particular expenditure, to expenditure of a particular class or to expenditure incurred at a particular time or during a particular period shall be as determined by the Commissioner.
