|3528||c1889 ?||General notes.||At this time it is unclear who owned the lower water race on the left bank of Bannockburn Creek, or exactly when it was in use and for how long. (It was possibly owned by William Ellis c1889) The tunnel is situated about 280m upstream of and opposite Wet Gully. It cuts through a terrace/low ridge of the Renshaw Range. It exits in a sluicing claim. The area is covered in briar rose and close inspection is not possible. The tunnel appears to be about 25m long.|
