3557 c1876 - c1882 John Pryde purchased the Excelsior.

It appears that John Pryde purchased the Excelsior from James Stuart. This may have been in 1876 when James Stuart moved to Cromwell, or it may have been as late as 1882 just before the formation of the Carrick Range Antimony Company. Heart of the Desert states that John Pryde purchased the mine for the antimony company.
