Although his purchases might be from just recently, he already is involved with Blue Gold for a while. This was discussed here several times. He also holds a director position in Bear Creek Mining. Mr. David Awram is involved with NuLegacy Gold.
Nolan Watson stated also that he will NOT have Sandstorm making a deal with other companies he is involved in. I do not remember where I read it, but trust me with this one. As for West Africa, PMI Gold could be a target for a nice stream deal. They will start with constuction soon and expect to be producing 220,000 ounces a year by the end of 2014. They did a placement recently, but probably will need another $200 million.
