      I don´t know this mining terminology very well but "fárat" means to go down to a mine, "farák" could be a miner´s denim or overall (if weared), maybe a lamp or a kind of tool (when carried). Does anyone know better? Both come probably from German "(an-, ein-)fahren".

      This is not for a translation job, so it's not urgent. I just can't
      find these terms in any dictionary, and I can't locate my Smirbuch.

      I'm reading a story in which a prisoner seems to be wearing or
      carrying a "farák" and two people "farat" together.

      What do these words mean?
