    Silver Wheaton’s (SLW) $1.9B purchase of Vale (VALE) gold streams should hike revenues generated from gold production from an average of 12% to a peak of ~25% in the next five years. The move is expected to immediately boost SLW’s production and cash flow profile by adding expected average gold production of 110K oz./year over the next 20 years, or ~$3.7B at prevailing gold prices, Jon Ogg calculates.

    Silver Wheaton (SLW) agrees to acquire from Vale (VALE) an amount of gold equal to 25% of the life of mine gold production from its Salobo Mine in Brazil, and 70% of the gold production for a 20-year term from some of its Sudbury Mines in Canada. SLW will pay $1.9B in cash, 10M warrants and ongoing payments of the lesser of $400 or the prevailing market price for each ounce of gold delivered under the agreement.

    Silver Wheaton (SLW), the miner which also helps other 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."

    RBC Capital releases its top global stocks for 2013 and, unsurprisingly, a handful of Canadian companies make the cut: BAM, MGA, SLW, TD, TU, VRX, DLMAF.PK, TFIFF.PK. Among other favorites: CBS, CLH, DFS, PCP, SHW, TUWLF.PK. The firm says the stocks should benefit from both a cyclical recovery and company-specific tailwinds.

    Q4 should show a big improvement for Silver Wheaton (SLW) after its Q3 suffered from several sales lags, Scotiabank mining analyst Trevor Turnbull says in calling shares a Buy. SLW is growing production at a 70% rate, he says, noting much of the expansion has begun and is anchored by low-cost assets such as Penasquito in Mexico and Pascua-Lama in Chile and Argentina.

    Sandstorm Gold (SAND), newly listed on the NYSE today, may warrant more attention than the typical junior miner making the jump up. President and CEO Nolan Watson had been CFO of Silver Wheaton (SLW), where he “helped raise over $1B in debt and equity to fund Silver Wheaton’s growth to a $5B market capitalization in less than five years.”
