Sandstorm Gold Ltd. Consumer Finance | Vancouver, BC

Sandstorm Gold finances gold mining projects through an arrangement called gold streaming. A gold stream involves Sandstorm making an upfront payment to a mining partner that is in need of capital to build their mine, refinance their obligations, complete an acquisition or for various other reasons. In exchange for that upfront payment, Sandstorm receives a contract which stipulates the purchase of a certain percentage of the gold produced from the mine, for the life of the mine, at a fixed per unit cost. To give an example, one of Sandstorm’s gold streaming agreements is with a company called Mutiny Gold (ASX-MYG). Mutiny needed capital for the development of its Deflector project in Western Australia. Sandstorm provided US$38 million to Mutiny as an upfront cash payment and in return, received a gold streaming agreement to purchase 15% of the life of mine gold produced from Deflector at US$500 per ounce.
