Names that other countries have for this feature:
E of Coppermine Cove (q.v.), Robert Island, was roughly charted by nineteenth-century sealers; called Cossets (?) Harbour (Pendleton, 1821-23, 18 December 1821) or Copper Mine Cove (Powell, chart, 1822a). Ance Copper Mine (Powell, 1824a, map facing p.5). The cove was recharted by DI, 1934-35, photographed from the air by FIDASE, 1956-57, and surveyed from the ground by FIDS, 1957-59. Since Powell's original name had become established for the cove to the W, the present feature was renamed Mitchell Cove after James Mitchell of London, co-owner of the cutter Beaufoy (Capt. J. Weddell) (Beaufoy Ridge, q.v.) on her voyage of 1822-24 (APC, 1962, p.22; BA chart 1774, 14.ix.1962); Mitchell's name had originally been applied by Weddell to Robert Island (q.v.). Caleta Nailon [=nylon cove] (Chile. DNH chart 1405, 1961; IHA, 1974, p.207). Caleta Naylon, Caleta Nylon (Araya and Hervé, 1966, p.40-41). CaletaEnojada [referring apparently to part of the main cove after the Argentine three-masted ship Enojada], Caleta Mitchell (Argentina. MD, 1978, letter E).
