Financing in Difficult Times: Metal Streaming Transactions

As the challenging environment for mining sector financing continues, streaming transactions are playing a more prominent role in bridging the “financing gap”. Traditional equity, debt and project finance markets have not been available to mining companies to the extent they have been in the past. Mining companies have had to become more creative in financing the development and expansion of their projects and their M&A transactions—and they have increasingly turned to streaming transactions as a source of financing.

The discussion will focus on the following topics: What are streaming transactions? How are streaming transactions structured? What are the recent developments in streaming transactions.



Erik Goldsilver is a partner in the Toronto office of Borden Ladner Gervais LLP. Erik practices in the Securities and Capital Markets group with specific expertise in the mining, natural resources and energy sectors.

Erik regularly acts for Canadian and international mining companies on acquisitions and dispositions of mines, mining projects and mining companies; project development; and mine operations in Canada and throughout the world. He also advises on the structuring and negotiation of option and joint venture agreements, shareholder agreements, royalty arrangements, offtake agreements and streaming agreements. Erik has extensive experience with all legal aspects of the development, construction and operation of mining projects, including advising on environmental and regulatory compliance matters, permitting issues and mine closure, decommissioning and reclamation issues.
