In 2008, Nolan Watson and David Awram founded Sandstorm with a vision to reshape the mine finance landscape through royalty financing.

At the time, this method of partnering with mines in return for royalties on production was uncommon, but it quickly became a mainstream source of funding. Since Sandstorm was founded in 2008, the combined market cap of streaming and royalty companies has grown to $47 billion.

With our first acquisitions in 2009, Sandstorm laid the foundation for what is now a portfolio of nearly 200 royalties. Today we have stable cash flow from 23 producing mines and a credit facility of $225 million (with an accordion feature of $75 million, for a total availability of up to $300 million), providing readily available capital for new acquisitions and further growth.
