Wheaton Precious Metals is the largest pure streaming company in the world. The Company has entered into agreements to purchase all or a portion of the precious metals or cobalt production from high-quality mines for an upfront payment and an additional payment upon delivery of the metal. Wheaton currently has streaming agreements for 20 operating mines and 9 development stage projects. The Company’s production profile is driven by a portfolio of low-cost, long-life assets, including a gold stream on Vale’s Salobo mine, and silver streams on Glencore's Antamina mine and Goldcorp's Peñasquito mine. Wheaton's unique business model creates significant shareholder value by providing:

  • Leverage to increases in the price of precious metals or cobalt;
  • Additional growth through the acquisition of new streams;
  • A dividend yield, which has the potential to grow over time; and,
  • Participation in the exploration success of the mines underlying its current agreements.

Wheaton offers these benefits while at the same time reduces many of the downside risks faced by traditional mining companies. In particular, Wheaton offers its investors both capital and operating cost predictability. Other than its initial upfront payment, Wheaton typically has no ongoing capital or exploration costs. 

The Company has an experienced management team with a strong track record of success, and is well positioned for further growth.
