The stream approach is much less common than the mining approach. Silver Wheaton employs the stream stratagem, meaning that it buys the silver before it is even pulled from the mine or they buy it from a company that pulled it but was mining for another metal. As much as 80% of the world's silver is discovered while mining for other metals. Silver stream companies save on mining costs and are often able to move more silver volume than mining companies.

Mining companies have the advantage of not buying silver through a third party but these companies run higher operating costs. Many mining companies struggle to maintain negative production costs hurting profit potential while silver prices rise.
