Wheaton Precious Metals is the world’s largest pure streaming company providing exposure primarily to silver and gold. Wheaton has come a long way from just being a silver focused company to one with a large portfolio comprising of 26 assets and a balanced production profile.
The company currently has streaming agreements for 19 operating mines and nine development stage projects. It operates a portfolio of low-cost and long-life assets, with over 30 years of mine life based on reserves, having high silver and gold production base.
Wheaton’s assets include a gold stream on Vale’s Salobo mine, silver streams on Glencore's Antamina mine and Newmont Goldcorp's Penasquito mine. Wheaton reduces many of the downside risks faced by traditional mining companies.
