In this episode we chat to David Awram, Senior Executive Vice President and Director of Sandstorm Gold, a royalty and streaming company focused in the precious metals space
David Co-founded Sandstorm Gold back in 2008 and has been instrumental in growing the company from a start-up to a leading mid-tier royalty company. David has been involved in billions of dollars worth of royalty financings and has evaluated hundreds of resource projects, including on-site due diligence at mines all over the world.

"We have a real strong belief that there's a lot of great aspects of owning royalties and streams, of course, being attached to assets without having to spend the capex."
"For a royalty streaming company, if you see the commodity price go up or margins go up, you can be guaranteed that as an owner, as a shareholder of it. It really is that much more protected and easy to understand model for investors looking into the space."
"The fact that nobody in the greater investment world has really taken that seriously or looked at that is really astounding. And so at some point, though, that really that problem has to come home to roost."
"We've been accumulating bits and pieces of projects that we believe eventually are really going to get there. Now, of all 250 of our projects, or how many of them are going to be up and producing 10 years from now? Well, it's certainly not going to be all 250."
