If a person is or claims to be the owner or entitled to the possession or enjoyment of a mine, mining claim, or premises, then in the possession of another, claiming to be the owner or entitled to the possession and mining, shipping or treating or selling the ore from it, the purchaser may, if the purchaser intends or desires to hold purchasers of or those intending to purchase the ore responsible for the value of the ore, serve upon the purchaser or intending purchaser a notice in writing, which contains the name of the mine, mining claim, or premises, the name of the person claiming or asserting ownership or right to the possession or enjoyment thereof, the name of the person in possession of and mining, shipping and selling ore from it, and warning the purchaser or intending purchaser that the purchaser or intending purchaser will be held liable and responsible for all ore purchased and delivered or to be purchased and delivered from the mine, mining claim, or premises by the person or the heirs, assigns or agents of that person subsequent to the service of the notice. Within 30 days from and after the service of the notice, the person serving it shall institute an action to enforce the person’s title against the person in possession of and mining and shipping ore from the mine, mines, mining claim, claims, or premises, and to enjoin the person in possession from the mining or shipment and sale of ores taken from them, pending the action, and at once notify the purchaser or intending purchaser of the ore of the pendency of the action. If the notice is served after the action is started, it is not necessary to begin another under this section.
