Return to Shareholders

Royal Gold concentrates on margin expansion by maintaining a lean cost structure, measures success on per share metrics and believes paying a sustainable.

About Us

Metal Streams

A metal stream is an agreement that provides, in exchange for an upfront deposit payment, the right to purchase all or a portion of one or more the precious metals produced from a mine, at a price determined for the life of the transaction by the purchase agreement.

royalties

Most of Royal Gold's royalties are based on production generated from a mine. For example, a 2.0% gross value royalty on a mine that produces 100,000 ounces of gold annually, would generate payments having a value of nearly 2,000 ounces of gold per year.

Growth Strategies

Acquire existing metal streams or royalties; Provide capital for the exploration, development and construction of precious metals mines in exchange for royalties; Monetize precious metals by-product streams from base metals operations in development.

Business Development

Royal Gold shares in the operating risk of the project, thereby eliminating the possibility of financial distress often caused by principal payments, maturity dates and hedging delivery requirements Royal Gold can structure transactions on a traditional royalty.

The Company began in 1981 as Royal Resources Corporation, an oil and gas exploration and production company. After 4-5 years of increasing prosperity, oil prices collapsed causing the company to falter and shift its focus from oil and gas to gold. At the time of this transition, Mr. Stanley Dempsey was a director of Royal Resources, Inc. and co-founder of Denver Mining Finance Corporation (“DMFC”), a merchant bank providing merger and acquisition and funding services to mining firms.

Mr. Dempsey's newly formed firm, DMFC, developed the strategy for Royal Resources to become a gold mining company. Royal Resources acquired DMFC in 1986 and Mr. Dempsey and his DMFC partner, Mr. Edwin Peiker, were then asked to manage the new Royal Gold. Mr. Dempsey and Mr. Peiker quickly pursued their new focus of becoming a gold operating company. By September 1987, the Company was actively pursuing acquisitions of gold producers and prospective exploration properties to achieve its goal of being a substantial gold producer and explorer.

The stock market pullback in October 1987 caused Royal Gold to again refocus its business strategy. The Company looked for partners for its properties and focused on being a minority owner of interests in significant gold properties operated by major mining firms.

In the long run, this final tactic proved to be a very successful strategy. After several lean years, Royal Gold acquired a marquee royalty on the Cortez Pipeline Mining Complex in Nevada which became the platform for today's efficient royalty business model.
