Bank Coal Company: In 1860 John Hyslop of Bank founded the Bank Coal Company.  There had been a number of pits on the lands adjoining the Hyslop’s home. These were small units, each employing between twenty and thirty miners. Hyslop acquired the furnaces and collieries of the ill-fated Nithsdale Iron Works. In 1863 the Creoch branch line, from the Glasgow-Carlisle line, was completed at which time John Hyslop acquired two partners , John Mackenzie and his brother Kenneth.  They deepened Bank No. 2, sank a new Bank No.1 and Bank No.3 all before 1868 [Carvel].

Lanemark Coal Company: In 1865 Robert Brown, John Hunter and James Paton formed the Lanemark Coal Company. Brown from Ayr, had previously headed a syndicate that leased the right to work the minerals on the lands of South Boig.  In 1863 Hunter of Burnfoot in the neighbouring parish of Dalmellington had taken a lease of the Lanemark minerals. Paton a business man from Ayr was a partner in the Clyde Iron Works and had interest in a number of enterprises in Ayr [Carvel].
