Wheaton Precious Metals is one of the largest precious metals streaming companies 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 21 operating mines and 13 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 a silver stream on Newmont's Penasquito mine.
