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. By 2017, the combined market cap of stream and royalty companies had grown to $34 billion.

With our first acquisitions in 2009, Sandstorm laid the foundation for what is now a portfolio of over 185 royalties. Today we have stable cash flow from 20 producing mines and a credit facility of $150 million, providing readily available capital for new acquisitions and further growth.
