About Silver Wheaton (SLW)

Official Website:

Established in 2004, a Canadian company Silver Wheaton has quickly positioned itself as the largest metals streaming company in the world. It generates its revenue primarily from the sale of silver. The company currently has fourteen silver purchase agreements and two precious metals agreements where, in exchange for an upfront payment, it has the right to purchase all or a portion of the silver production, at a low fixed cost, from high-quality mines located in politically stable regions. SLW's industry-leading growth profile is driven by a portfolio of world-class assets, including silver streams on Goldcorp's Penasquito mine in Mexico and Barrick's Pascua-Lama project straddling the border of Chile and Argentina. The company's unique business model creates significant shareholder value by providing considerable leverage to increases in the silver price while reducing the downside risks faced by traditional mining companies. SLW has an experienced management team with a strong track record of success and is well positioned for further growth.
