§196. Obligations of naked owner arising from enjoyment of rights in minerals

In enjoying the right recognized by Article 195, the naked owner is entitled to use only so much of the surface of the land as is reasonably necessary for his operations, but he is responsible to the usufructuary or those holding rights under him for the value of such use and for all damages caused by the naked owner's mining activities or operations. If the activities or operations are conducted by one to whom the naked owner has granted a mineral right, the naked owner and his grantee are liable in solido for damages suffered by the usufructuary or those holding rights under him.
