"For the second quarter in a row, we achieved record silver sales and revenues, putting us on track for our best year ever," said Randy Smallwood, President and Chief Executive Officer of Silver Wheaton. "Production from most of our assets was very solid, with Zinkgruvan once again delivering a strong quarter and with sales of concentrate produced but not yet delivered from Yauliyacu contributing considerably to our revenues and cash flow. While we did see some temporary shortfalls in production at the Peñasquito mine and a delay at Pascua-Lama, we remain confident in our partners and view both of these assets as core streams which solidify our industry-leading growth profile.""We recently announced a transaction with Hudbay that once again highlights the effectiveness of our business model, combining the certainty of fixed capital and operating costs with immediate cash flow and long term growth potential. We are extremely excited about adding two new streams, one for silver and gold from Hudbay's current flagship mine, 777, and the other for silver from their cornerstone development asset, Constancia. These new streams deliver an immediate increase to our silver and gold production, with 777 contributing average annual production of approximately 4.2 million silver equivalent ounces [ 1] until the end of 2016. Once Constancia is in full production, which is forecast by 2015, both mines provide substantial opportunity for future growth. With the addition of these assets to our portfolio, our 2016 production guidance has increased to approximately 48 million silver equivalent ounces."
