598.     Relations between miner and landowner.

The rights of landowner and miner are correlative. There is no privity of title between them. The miner is entitled to the use of the land in order to get lead and, while the mine is being worked, to various other easements and rights, but he has no absolute right in perpetuity1. In the High Peak district, the landowner is entitled to all that remains when the lead has been extracted and to the full property in the land when the mine is abandoned2.
