rising to 675m, S of Ferguson Channel, Danco Coast, was charted as an island (separated from the mainland by a narrow channel) by BeAE on 10 February 1898, when a landing was made in the vicinity; named Île Banck probably after a supporter of the expedition (Lec2ointe, map, 1899; Ar towski, 1900, p.129) or Banck Island (Cook, 1900, map p.xx). The feature was misidentified as Mount William (q.v.) (BA chart 1238, viii.1900). Monte Willians [sic] ([Irïzar], 1903, map facing p.4). Île Bank [sic] (Gourdon, 1908, p.89).

Following air photography by FIDASE in 1956-57, the mountain was shown to be the main feature of a small peninsula and named Mount Banck (APC, 1960, p.2; BA chart 3566, 25.viii.1961).
