We Expect to be at 53 Million Ounces per Year by 2017, Silver Wheaton CEO, Randy Smallwood. For fans of Silver Wheaton (SLW) with this interview Kicto staff as he was present at PDAC.


Established in 2004, Silver Wheaton has quickly positioned itself as the largest precious metals streaming company in the world. The company has a number of agreements where, in exchange for an upfront payment, it has the right to purchase all or a portion of the silver and/or gold production, at a low fixed cost, from high-quality mines located in politically stable regions around the globe. 

Based upon its current agreements, forecast 2013 attributable production is approximately 33.5 million silver equivalent ounces, including 145 thousand ounces of gold. By 2017, annual attributable production is anticipated to increase significantly to approximately 53 million silver equivalent ounces, including 180 thousand ounces of gold. Other than its initial upfront payment, Silver Wheaton typically has no ongoing capital or exploration costs, and the company does not hedge its silver or gold production. 

Silver Wheaton’s industry-leading growth profile is driven by the company’s portfolio of low-cost and long-life assets, including streams on Barrick’s Pascua-Lama project, Hudbay’s Constancia project, and Vale’s Salobo and Sudbury mines. The company’s unique business model creates significant shareholder value by providing leverage to increases in the price of silver and gold, while reducing the downside risks faced by traditional mining companies. Silver Wheaton has an experienced management team with a strong track record of success and is well positioned for further growth.
