Silver Wheaton Acquires Life Of Mine Precious Metals Streams From Hudbay's 777 Mine And Constancia Project

Stocks in this article: HBM SLW

With the addition of two new precious metal streams, Silver Wheaton is revising its one and five year production guidance. In 2012, attributable silver equivalent production is forecast to increase from 27 million silver equivalent ounces to 28 million silver equivalent ounces, including 42,000 ounces of gold [ 3 ]. In 2016, annual attributable production is anticipated to increase 90% compared to 2011 levels, growing to approximately 48 million silver equivalent ounces, including 100,000 ounces of gold [ 1 ].

As per Goldcorp Inc.'s ("Goldcorp") July 10, 2012 disclosure, second quarter mill throughput at its Peñasquito mine was impacted by lower than anticipated water supplies, due to prolonged drought conditions in the region. This resulted in a reduction of 2012 forecast silver production attributable to Silver Wheaton. However, this reduction is expected to be more than offset by attributable silver and gold production from the 777 mine, resulting in a net increase in Silver Wheaton's 2012 production forecast.
