Geologic setting

Geologic description

The 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.
