283.     Co-owners.

Where persons are co-owners of a mine1, the trustees in whom the mine is vested2, apart from their powers of sale3, may partition the property4. In the case of persons who are co-owners of the mine and partners in the mine, or in the mine and the working5, a sale by one owner of his share, without the consent of the others6, is probably a ground of dissolution of the partnership7.
