|Location and accuracy||Cobb (1972, MF-413), loc. 45; SW1/4NW1/4 sec. 21, T. 3 N., R. 2 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. This deposit is above Rexall Cabin at the head of Wolf Creek. Accuracy is within 1,000 feet.|
Geologic descriptionThe prospect was discovered prior to 1912 when the shaft had already caved. The prospect reportedly contained ore with free gold but no production records are available (Smith, 1913; B 525). Chapin (1914) plotted the location of the Banner prospect but did not examine the prospect in 1913. No other published or private references to the Banner prospect are known.
