The “Verleihbuch der Rattenberger Bergrichter (1460-1463, TLA Hs. 37)” is of central importance for late medieval mining in the mountain region of Rattenberg in Tyrol (Austria) since it contains official extraction rights (= claims) to mine ores and minerals in the mining district of Brixlegg-Rattenberg. Furthermore, the document lists the grants of logging rights in general (ger. Holzschlag) and logging rights dedicated to smelting ores (ger. Hüttschlag).The present document contains the complete transcription of the historical document. The transcription was done within the framework of the project “Text Mining Medieval Mining Texts”. The research project (2019-2022) was carried out at the university of Innsbruck and funded by go!digital next generation programme of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
