    The Montana-Tonopah Mining Company Silver Mine was closed at the time of data entry with no known plans to re-open. Production size when active was considered to be large. The ore mined is composed of stephanite and polybasite with waste material consisting primarily of rhodochrosite and calcite. The ore body extends meters ( feet) thick. The Bannock Gold Mine is near Tonopah, Nevada. Historically the site has been associated with the Hannapah Mining District which is now part of the Toiyabe National Forest. The site was first discovered in by W. H. Thomas Of Tonopah. Production output of the Bannock Gold Mine was considered to be small size.

    Silver ore mined mined nearby was compared to the deposits at Goldfield. Soon, Silverbow was the largest mining camp in eastern Nye County. By the summer of , the townsite was populated with a post office, stores, saloons, meat company, and a newspaper the Standard, which published one edition with the ink on the front page mixed with gold. The A m X n type “sulfides” with m: n > 3 are rather rare, as are the A 3 X type members. The A 2 X type minerals are much more common, with argentite (Ag 2 S) and digenite (Cu 9 S 5) being the most frequently observed of those in the argentite is noted that digenite has an m:n ratio of , which deviates from the type characterization, Chalcocite (Cu 2 S) is the most .
