The title of the owner of mines1 and minerals2 having the right to enter and get the minerals is not barred by the simple omission to exercise his right3. Similarly, the right to work a mine is not lost by simply ceasing to work it4. Moreover, if a trespasser to a mine abandons possession before he has acquired a title, time does not continue to run in his favour even if there is no new act of ownership by the rightful owner5.
