Business Description

Industry: Metals & Mining » Gold
Compare:EGO, ABX, GG, NMCEF, IAG » details
Traded in other countries:SSL.Canada, AYS1.Germany
Sandstorm Resources Ltd. was incorporated under the Business Corporations Act on March 23, 2007. The Company seeks to acquire volume based production payment contracts (VPPs) from companies that have advanced stage development projects or operating mines. The Company is focused on acquiring VPPs on mines with low production costs, significant exploration potential and strong management teams. The Company's main product is gold that it has agreed to purchase in the future pursuant to the Luna Purchase Agreement and the SilverCrest Purchase Agreement. There is a worldwide gold market into which the Company could sell the gold purchased under the gold purchase contracts and, as a result, the Company would not be dependent on a particular purchaser with regard to the sale of the gold that it expects to acquire from the Aurizona and Santa Elena projects in the future. The Company has two wholly-owned subsidiaries, Sandstorm Resources (Barbados) Ltd., incorporated under the laws of Barbados, and Sandstorm Resources (Canada) Ltd., incorporated under the laws of the Province of British Columbia. The Company competes with other companies to identify suitable VPPs and enter into agreements for the purchase of gold and other metals, except for silver. The exploration and development activities related to the Mining Operations are subject to various federal, provincial and local laws governing prospecting, development, production, taxes, labor standards and occupational health, mine safety, toxic substance and other matters.
