The penalty for working a mine before it is freed1, or for committing a trespass2 in the third meer3, is forfeiture of the mine to the owner of the mineral duties4, enforceable by proceedings in the Small Barmote Court in the name of the barmaster5. The non-working of a mine or vein for no sufficient reason is also a cause of forfeiture, upon which it may be given by the barmaster to any person willing to work it6.
