(225 ILCS 710/12) (from Ch. 96 1/2, par. 4219)
    Sec. 12. It shall be the duty of the inspector, after every inspection of any mine or parts of any mine, as provided in this Act, to enter forthwith in a book to be kept at the mine and designated as the "record of inspection" the parts of the mine so inspected, the nature of such inspection, and every illegal defect observed in the state and condition of the mine, machinery and appliances; but nothing contained in or omitted from such entry shall limit or affect the duty and obligation of the owner or operator of such mine under this Act. Such "record of inspection" shall be open at all reasonable times to the examination of the inspector or to the examination of any person employed at the mine.
    Provided, however, that such records shall not be in lieu of, or a substitute for, the notice required to be served by section 10 of this Act.
