How much of the $363m for landowners?

The Chinese bauxite mine in Bua has exported 500 million tonnes of bauxite. At $US400 a tonne this means the shipment is worth $363 million. How much of this mountain of money has been returned to the landowners from whose land this resource has been dug? Good King Frank allows a few crumbs from this table to fall into the hands of the landowners and they are expected to fall at his feet and treat him as Frank the Merciful, frank the Municifent, all hail Frank.
