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 over 200 royalties. Today we have royalties on 24 producing mines around the world that are generating stable cash flow for future acquisitions and Sandstorm's further growth.
