Silver Wheaton (SLW), the silver miner which also helps miners pay for projects in exchange for a discount on their silver and gold output, has traditionally talked to smaller miners unable to tap debt and equity markets, but CEO Randy Smallwood says it is seeing increased interest from metal producers with market values "up into the tens and hundreds of billions."





Cannot help but think that this will be the case for Sandstorm also .... .  and with depressed equity prices for junior and senior miners .. . Sandstorm (and other streamers) are in a very good position to negotiate.
