The Basics of Mining Royalties And Streaming
Historically, mining companies used a mixture of equity and debt finance to raise capital for the construction, expansion and development of their assets.
Since the global financial crisis in 2008 and the downturn in commodity prices, those funding sources have been significantly constrained and, in some cases, have dried up altogether. This has created the opportunity for Stream and Royalty Finance.
Stream and Royalty Finance comprises a situation where a company makes up front payments to development stage mining companies to purchase part of their future production at a price below the market price. The mining company receives capital through immediately monetising part of its future production.
Stream and Royalty Finance is still relatively new and with many high-quality mining projects requiring financing there is an opportunity for investors to receive a good return on investment. Only mining projects which have sufficient forecast-free cash flow to cover the financing and offer a reasonable return for investors are attractive to streaming and royalty finance companies.
There are many mining companies with high-quality projects which they cannot afford to commence, let alone get into commercial production. The cost of mine development, plant and equipment and start-up costs is more than many mining companies can afford to pay from their existing financing.
The traditional sources of finance are usually depleted through exploration and costly technical studies before the mining company gets to the mine construction decision.
This is where the Raptor team come in. Mining projects requiring finance will be introduced by carefully selected financiers who specialise in metals mining with particular emphasis on precious metals. Part of the Raptor team will also meet mining companies at precious metals company forums.
