The owner, tenant, or occupant of any land on which a coal mine is opened and worked, or his agent, shall permit any person interested in, or having title to, any land coterminous with that in which such coal mine is, to have ingress and egress with surveyors and assistants to explore and survey such mine at his own expense, and not oftener than once a month, for the purpose of ascertaining whether or not the preceding section has been violated. Every owner, tenant, occupant, or agent, who shall refuse such permission, exploration or survey, shall forfeit twenty dollars for each refusal to the person so refused.
