The kings of Spain did not finance companies of discovery, but allowed the explorations to be made on behalf of the conquerors.
Carvajal traveled to Spain and negotiated a contract with Felipe II of Spain in which he was awarded the pacification and population of a vast territory of "200 leagues inland" km.--about 1,000.
Meanwhile, around 1588 Luis de Carvajal managed to get released and undertook the task of repopulating the mines of Trinidad, which he called New Almaden -Monclova- and appointed Diego de Montemayor lieutenant governor of Coahuila with jurisdiction over St.
Lucia extending to the Parras and from the Rio Grande to Lagua.
According to one chronicler, in these places there came to be as many as 200 men who undertook the capture of Indians thereby bringing more soldiers to the villages.
