|Silver Wheaton Corporation was formed under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario). It is a silver streaming company in the world. The Corporation is actively pursuing further growth opportunities, mainly by way of entering into long-term silver purchase contracts. The Company currently has nine business segments: the silver produced by the Luismin, Zinkgruvan, Yauliyacu, Peñasquito, Cozamin, Barrick and Other mines, the silver and gold produced by the Minto mine and corporate operations. The Corporation’s main product is silver that it has agreed to purchase pursuant to silver purchase agreements. There is a worldwide silver market into which the Corporation could sell the silver purchased under the silver purchase contracts and, as a result, the Corporation would not be dependent on a particular purchaser with regard to the sale of the silver that it acquires pursuant to its silver purchase agreements. The Company competes with other companies for silver purchase agreements and similar transactions. The Mining Operations are subject to extensive foreign laws and regulations governing exploration, development, production, exports, taxes, labour standards, waste disposal, protection and remediation of the environment, reclamation, historic and cultural resources preservation, mine safety and occupation health, handling, storage and transportation of hazardous substances and other matters.|
