    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.

    "It's good to be back making acquisitions," Silver Wheaton's (SLW +2.1%) Randy Smallwood says ahead of Q2 earnings and after its $750M deal to purchase gold and silver from HudBay mines. Deals had been too expensive with silver prices above $40/oz., but "we do think silver is near a bottom." As far as most analysts are concerned, the deal was worth the wait.
