The lease was first taken up by Mr. Boord, who established Angorichina in the 1850s.

In 1859, the property was visited by the surveyors Selwyn and Goyder and by the Governor of South Australia, Richard MacDonnell. Later the same year a shepherd on Angorichina Station, Robert Blinman, first discovered copper and took out a mining lease which later became the Blinman mine.
