Social Responsibility

Silver Wheaton has streams with mines in Canada and around the world. We are committed to creating a sustainable, positive impact on the communities where our employees live and work, and we support a number of worthy causes in Canada and abroad each year.

In 2014, we initiated an exciting new corporate social responsibility program to help our mining communities. We now provide financial support for our mining partners’ CSR projects in mining communities where our precious metals are produced. We announced the launch of the program by supporting projects led by two of our mining partners, Primero Mining and Barrick Gold.

To start, Silver Wheaton helped Primero to finance the building of three community facilities in Tayoltita, Mexico, a town located near the San Dimas mine, one of our largest producers. This project provides much-needed recreational opportunities for the community of Tayoltita. We also supported a key initiative led by Barrick; they executed an irrigation project in the communities of Jachal and Iglesia of San Juan Province, Argentina, located near the Veladero mine and Pascua-Lama project. The goal of this project was to enhance water conservation and agricultural outputs by conserving and optimizing water resources through the implementation of drip and sprinkling irrigation technology. Both of these projects were completed in 2015.

We believe that Silver Wheaton’s financial contributions will positively impact the communities where these mining operations are located, providing long-term, sustainable benefits. We are pleased with the results of our current agreements and look forward to creating new agreements with existing and future mining partners.

Silver Wheaton receives numerous requests for support from a wide variety of organizations in Canada and abroad. After reviewing each request, we select programs that best fit into our marketing plans and overall commitment to corporate social responsibility. If you would like your proposal considered by Silver Wheaton, please submit your request to info@silverwheaton.com.
