First seen from the air and photographed by the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE) in 1936, and later roughly mapped from the photographs. The islands were visited and surveyed from the ground in 1948 by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS), and so named by them because there is mica in the schists which form them.
