The mineral duties payable by the miners to the owners of such duties1 are 'lot' and 'cope'. Lot is a duty rendered in kind2; cope is a money payment3. The duty of lot is taken by the barmaster when the ore is measured4, and payment of cope is recoverable, if necessary, by action in the county court or the Small Barmote Court5.
