Royal Gold Trade Inc acquires and manages precious metals stream and royalty interests, with a primary focus on gold. The Company’s portfolio provides investors with a unique opportunity to capture value in the precious metals sector without incurring many of the costs and risks associated with mine operations.
To acquire a royalty, Royal Gold Trade Inc buys a percentage of the metal produced from a mineral property in exchange for an initial payment. Existing royalties are acquired outright from either a mineral resource company or a private party; new royalties are generally created by providing capital to an operator or explorer in exchange for a royalty. Precious metal streams are purchase agreements with mine operators that provide, in exchange for an upfront deposit payment, the right to purchase all or a portion of one or more metals produced from a mine, at a price determined for the life of the transaction by the purchase agreement. Except for one joint venture property where we conduct exploration, we do not conduct work on the properties in which we hold stream and royalty interests, and we are not responsible for contributing to exploration, operating, environmental or capital costs on those properties.
Royal Gold Trade Inc is engaged in the acquisition, and management of precious metals royalties and streams. Our gold-focused, world-class portfolio includes 38 producing and 22 development-stage royalties or similar interests. Read our Business Strategy ›
