OVERVIEW

Silver Wheaton Corp. ("Silver Wheaton" or the "Company") is a growth-oriented silver company, and is the largest mining company with 100% of its revenue from silver production. The Company's goal is to be recognized as the most profitable and best managed silver company in the world.

The Company has entered into three long-term silver purchase contracts with Goldcorp (Luismin mines in Mexico), Lundin Mining (Zinkgruvan mine in Sweden) and Glencore (Yauliyacu mine in Peru), whereby Silver Wheaton acquires silver production from the counterparties at a fixed price of $3.90 per ounce, subject to an inflationary adjustment. As a result, the primary drivers behind the Company's financial results are the volume of silver production at the various mines and the price of silver.

Silver Wheaton was recently recognized as the strongest, and one of the fastest growing, public companies in the Vancouver Sun's Business BC Top 100 Companies. The list was compiled by experts from Ernst & Young and the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia, and included long time business leaders such as Teck Cominco, Goldcorp and Telus.

The Company expects, based upon its current contracts, to have annual silver sales of approximately 16 million ounces in 2007, increasing to 20 million ounces by 2009 and thereafter.

SUMMARIZED FINANCIAL RESULTS

The year end of the Company was changed from August 31 to December 31, during 2004. As a result, comparative figures include the four months ended December 31, 2004.

Changes in sales, net earnings and cash flow from operations from quarter to quarter are affected primarily by changes in the price of silver, fluctuations in production at the mines and timing of shipments that are in the normal course of operations. Changes in the number of ounces sold between the second and third quarters of 2006 relate primarily to temporary grade fluctuations at Luismin, as well as timing of shipments at Zinkgruvan.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND OPERATIONAL REVIEW

The Company has four business segments, the silver produced by the Luismin, Zinkgruvan and Yauliyacu mines, and corporate operations. The acquisition of silver from the Yauliyacu mine began in May, 2006.

Luismin

On October 15, 2004, a 100% subsidiary of the Company, Silver Wheaton (Caymans) Ltd. ("SW Caymans"), entered into an agreement to purchase all of the silver produced by Goldcorp's Luismin mining operations in Mexico for a period of 25 years, for an upfront payment of $36.7 million (Cdn$46.0 million) in cash and 108 million common shares of the Company. In addition, a per ounce cash payment of the lesser of $3.90 and the prevailing market price is due (subject to an inflationary adjustment commencing in 2007). Under this agreement, Luismin was required to deliver a minimum of 120 million ounces over the 25 year period following the contract date, and Silver Wheaton was obligated to pay 50% of any capital expenditures made by Luismin at its mining operations in excess of 110% of the projected capital expenditures outlined in the contract.

On March 30, 2006, Goldcorp and Silver Wheaton amended the silver purchase contract, increasing the minimum number of ounces of silver to be delivered over the 25 year period by 100 million ounces, to 220 million ounces, and waiving any capital expenditure contributions previously required to be paid by Silver Wheaton. In consideration for these amendments, Silver Wheaton issued to Goldcorp 18 million common shares and a $20 million non-interest bearing promissory note due on March 30, 2007. As a result, at September 30, 2006, Goldcorp owned 57% of the Company's common shares.

The amendment to the silver purchase contract was made in connection with Goldcorp's plans to substantially increase its investment in exploration and development at its San Dimas mine in Mexico. As a result of the planned exploration and development at San Dimas, Silver Wheaton and Goldcorp anticipate that additional silver sales will aggregate more than 100 million ounces over the remaining 24 year term of the silver purchase agreement. It is projected that Luismin's annual silver production will approximate 8.5 million ounces in 2007, increasing to 13 million ounces by 2009 and thereafter.

Under Silver Wheaton's existing Luismin agreement with Goldcorp, Silver Wheaton is entitled to purchase a 49% interest in production, development or exploration properties acquired by Goldcorp in Mexico until October 15, 2007. In connection with Goldcorp's proposed acquisition of Glamis Gold Ltd. ("Glamis"), Silver Wheaton has agreed to waive its right to acquire an interest in any of Glamis' Mexican projects. In exchange for this waiver, Goldcorp has agreed to negotiate exclusively with Silver Wheaton, for a period of 180 days from the date of Goldcorp's acquisition of Glamis, for the potential purchase by Silver Wheaton of a portion of the future production of silver to be mined from the Penasquito Project. If Silver Wheaton and Goldcorp are not successful in entering into a silver purchase agreement on the Penasquito Project during such time, Silver Wheaton will retain a right of first refusal on any future silver purchase agreements based on the Penasquito Project, for so long as Goldcorp maintains at least a 20% interest in Silver Wheaton.

During the quarter, SW Caymans purchased 2.2 million ounces (2005 - 2.0 million ounces) of silver at a total cash cost of $3.90 per ounce, and sold it for an average price of $11.62 per ounce (2005 - $7.08 per ounce). During the nine months ended September 30, 2006, SW Caymans purchased 6.8 million ounces (2005 - 6.1 million ounces) of silver at a total cash cost of $3.90 per ounce, and sold it for an average price of $11.27 per ounce (2005 - $7.06 per ounce). The Company's cash flows and net earnings under the Luismin silver purchase contract for the three months ended September 30, 2006 were $17.3 million (2005 - $6.4 million) and $16.3 million (2005 -$5.6 million) respectively, and for the nine months ended September 30, 2006 were $50.5 million (2005 - $19.0 million) and $47.9 million (2005 - $16.9 million) respectively.

At December 31, 2005, the Luismin mines had proven and probable reserves of 45.4 million ounces of silver and inferred resources of 188.4 million ounces of silver (as described in the Reserves and Resources section of this Management's Discussion and Analysis), an increase of 12.7% and 29.4% respectively, compared to the reserves and resources at December 31, 2004, despite production during 2005 of 7.7 million ounces of silver. Luismin has historically converted resources into reserves at a rate of approximately 90%.

The results of the Luismin mine operations for the three months ended September 30, 2006 are shown below:

Zinkgruvan

On December 8, 2004, SW Caymans entered into an agreement to purchase all of the silver produced by Lundin Mining's Zinkgruvan mining operations in Sweden ("Zinkgruvan") for the life of mine. During the three months ended September 30, 2006, SW Caymans purchased 0.3 million ounces (2005 - 0.5 million ounces) of silver at a total cash cost of $3.90 per ounce, and sold it for an average price of $12.91 per ounce (2005 - $7.34 per ounce). During the nine months ended September 30, 2006, SW Caymans purchased 1.3 million ounces (2005 - 1.3 million ounces) of silver at a total cash cost of $3.90 per ounce, and sold it for an average price of $11.21 per ounce (2005 - $7.25 per ounce). The Company's cash flows and net earnings under the Zinkgruvan silver purchase contract for the three months ended September 30, 2006 were $2.5 million (2005 - $1.6 million) and $2.1 million (2005 - $0.9 million) respectively, and for the nine months ended September 30, 2006 were $8.7 million (2005 - $3.7 million) and $7.2 million (2005 - $2.4 million) respectively.

As at December 31, 2005, Zinkgruvan had proven and probable silver reserves of 25.8 million ounces, measured and indicated silver resources of 6.8 million ounces and inferred silver resources of 29.4 million ounces (as described in the Reserves and Resources section of this Management's Discussion and Analysis). The Zinkgruvan mine is expected to produce approximately 2 million ounces of silver annually for a minimum of 20 years, and is one of the lowest cost zinc mines in the world. The mine is located in south-central Sweden and has been in production on a continuous basis since 1857.

Yauliyacu

On March 23, 2006, SW Caymans entered into an agreement with Glencore to purchase 4.75 million ounces of silver per year, for a period of 20 years, based on the production from their Yauliyacu mining operations in Peru. Total consideration paid was $285 million, comprised of $245 million in cash and a $40 million promissory note, which was paid in full on May 31, 2006. In addition, a cash payment of $3.90 per ounce of silver delivered under the contract is due, subject to an inflationary adjustment.

During May 2006, the Company began purchasing silver under the Yauliyacu silver purchase contract and during the three months ended September 30, 2006, SW Caymans purchased 1.0 million ounces of silver at a total cash cost of $3.90 per ounce, and sold it for an average price of $12.10 per ounce. During the nine months ended September 30, 2006, SW Caymans purchased 1.9 million ounces of silver at a total cash cost of $3.90 per ounce, and sold it for an average price of $12.50 per ounce. The Company's cash flows and net earnings under the Yauliyacu silver purchase contract for the three months ended September 30, 2006 were $8.4 million and $4.6 million respectively, and for the nine months ended September 30, 2006 were $16.3 million and $9.3 million respectively.

During the term of the contract, Silver Wheaton has a right of first refusal on any future sales of silver streams from the Yauliyacu mine and a right of first offer on future sales of silver streams from any other mine owned by Glencore at the time of the initial transaction. In addition, Silver Wheaton has an option to extend the 20 year term of the silver purchase contract in five year increments, on substantially the same terms as the existing contract, subject to an adjustment related to silver price expectations at the time and other factors.

As at December 31, 2005, Yauliyacu had proven and probable silver reserves of 12.9 million ounces, measured and indicated silver resources of 52.2 million ounces and inferred silver resources of 64.7 million ounces (as described in the Reserves and Resources section of this Management's Discussion and Analysis).

General and administrative expenses totaled $740,000 during the three months ended September 30, 2006 compared with $463,000 during the same period in 2005. This increase resulted primarily from increased insurance costs and increased salary expenses incurred as a result of hiring additional employees. During the nine months ended September 30, 2006, general and administrative expenses totaled $2,459,000 compared with $1,386,000 during the same period in 2005. This increase was also the result of increased insurance and salary expenses, as well as a one-time New York Stock Exchange listing fee of $250,000.

The Company did not incur any interest expense during the quarter (nine months - $712,000). In connection with the Yauliyacu transaction, upfront debt financing costs of $1,124,000 were incurred, of which $10,000 were amortized to income during the quarter (nine months - $939,000).

The stock based compensation expense, which is a non-cash item, has been estimated using the Black-Scholes option valuation method to determine the fair value of the share purchase options granted. During the quarter, 15,000 restricted share rights and no share purchase options were issued. As a result, the stock based compensation expense during the quarter is due primarily to the amortization of previously issued stock options and restricted share rights.

Project evaluation expenses of $43,000 (2005 - $9,000) were incurred in pursuing additional silver acquisition opportunities. It is anticipated that project evaluation expenses will continue.

Interest income during the quarter of $732,000 (2005 - $192,000) was the result of interest earned on cash balances held in short-term money market instruments.

During the quarter, a foreign exchange loss of $27,000 (2005 gain - $115,000) was realized, as a result of the Company holding a portion of its cash balances in Canadian dollars, while the Canadian dollar decreased (2005 - increased) in value against the US dollar (the Company's functional currency).

Non-GAAP measures - total cash costs per ounce of silver calculation

Silver Wheaton has included, throughout this document, certain non-GAAP performance measures including total cash costs of silver on a sales basis. These non-GAAP measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable with similar measures presented by other companies. Cash costs are presented as they represent an industry standard method of comparing certain costs on a per unit basis. The Company believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company's performance. The data is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2006, the Company's total cash costs were $3.90 per ounce of silver.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

At September 30, 2006, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $62.0 million (December 31, 2005 - $117.7 million) and working capital of $42.8 million (December 31, 2005 - $118.7 million), which includes the $20.0 million promissory note due to Goldcorp relating to the amendment of the Luismin silver purchase contract. During the quarter, the Company generated operating cash flows of $28.3 million (nine months - $74.9 million), compared with $8.0 million (nine months - $22.3 million) during the same period in 2005. In the opinion of management, these are sufficient to support the Company's normal operating requirements on an ongoing basis.

Bear Creek

During September 2006, Silver Wheaton acquired 2,314,600 additional shares of Bear Creek Mining Corp. ("Bear Creek"), at a cost of $18.5 million (Cdn$20.6 million). As a result, at September 30, 2006, Silver Wheaton owned 7,676,505 common shares and warrants exercisable to acquire an additional 270,000 common shares, representing approximately 19% of the outstanding shares of Bear Creek on an undiluted basis. At September 30, 2006, the fair value of the Company's investment in Bear Creek was $68.9 million. Silver Wheaton has acquired these shares for investment purposes.

Yauliyacu silver purchase contract

On March 23, 2006, the Company entered into an agreement with Glencore to purchase 4.75 million ounces of silver per year, for a period of 20 years, based on the production from their Yauliyacu mining operations in Peru. Total consideration paid was $285 million, comprised of $245 million in cash and a $40 million promissory note due on July 21, 2006. In addition, a cash payment of $3.90 per ounce of silver delivered under the contract is due, subject to an inflationary adjustment.

Luismin silver purchase contract amendment

On March 30, 2006, Goldcorp and Silver Wheaton amended their existing silver purchase contract, increasing the minimum number of ounces of silver to be delivered by Goldcorp over the 25 year contract period by 100 million ounces, to 220 million ounces, and waiving any capital expenditure contributions previously required to be paid by Silver Wheaton. In consideration for these amendments, Silver Wheaton issued to Goldcorp 18 million common shares and a $20 million non-interest bearing promissory note due on March 30, 2007.

Public Offering

On April 20, 2006, the Company raised gross proceeds of $175 million (Cdn$200 million) from a public offering of 16,644,000 shares at a price of Cdn$12.00 per share. The offering proceeds were used to repay $120 million of bank debt and a $40 million promissory note due to Glencore.

Bank debt

In March 2006, the Company entered into a credit agreement with the Bank of Nova Scotia, as lead arranger and administrative agent, to borrow $100 million under a non revolving term loan (the "Term Loan") and $25 million under a revolving term loan (the "Revolving Loan") in order to partially finance the acquisition of the Yauliyacu silver purchase contract. During April, 2006, both the Term Loan and the Revolving Loan were repaid in full. The Term Loan was cancelled upon repayment, while the Revolving Loan facility remains available.

Contractual obligations

In connection with the Luismin and Zinkgruvan silver purchase contracts, the Company has committed to purchase 100% of the silver produced by each mine for a per-ounce cash payment of the lesser of $3.90 and the then prevailing market price, subject to adjustment. This inflationary adjustment, which will begin in 2007, is intended to reflect the effects of inflation on operating costs, and is subject to a minimum of 0.4% and a maximum of 1.65% per annum. In connection with the Yauliyacu silver purchase contract, the Company has committed to purchase 4.75 million ounces of silver per year, based on production at the Yauliyacu mine, for a per-ounce cash payment of $3.90, subject to adjustment. This inflationary adjustment, which will begin in 2009, is intended to reflect the effects of inflation on operating costs, and is subject to a minimum of 1.0% and a maximum of 1.65% per annum.

Share capital

During the quarter, the Company received cash proceeds of $0.5 million (2005 - $0.6 million) from the exercise of 184,000 (2005 - 215,000) share purchase options at a weighted average exercise price of Cdn$3.25 per option. As of November 2, 2006, there were 220,437,111 outstanding common shares, 4,597,666 share purchase options and 165,346,100 share purchase warrants, which are convertible into 39,319,220 common shares.

RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

At September 30, 2006, Goldcorp owned 57% of the Company's outstanding common shares. During the quarter, the Company purchased 2.2 million ounces (2005 - 2.0 million ounces) of silver from a subsidiary of Goldcorp at a price of $3.90 per ounce, for total consideration of approximately $8.6 million (2005 - $7.8 million). During the nine months ended September 30, 2006, the Company purchased 6.8 million ounces (2005 - 6.1 million ounces) of silver from the subsidiary at a price of $3.90 per ounce, for total consideration of approximately $26.6 million (2005 - $23.7 million).

On March 30, 2006, Silver Wheaton and Goldcorp amended the Luismin silver purchase agreement, as described elsewhere in this Management's Discussion and Analysis. As a result of this transaction the Company issued 18 million shares and a non-interest bearing $20 million promissory note to Goldcorp, due on March 30, 2007. In addition, during September 2006, Silver Wheaton and Goldcorp entered into an agreement whereby Silver Wheaton will receive a right of first refusal on future silver production from the Penasquito project in Mexico, upon the successful completion of Goldcorp's acquisition of Glamis Gold Ltd.

The Company has an agreement with Goldcorp whereby Goldcorp provides certain management and administrative services at cost. During the quarter, total management fees paid to Goldcorp were $55,000 (nine months - $198,000) compared to $74,600 (nine months - $341,400) during the same period in 2005. This agreement allows for cancellation with 30 days notice at any time.

In addition, during March 2006, the Company sold leasehold improvements and furniture and fixtures to Goldcorp at their net book value of $145,000. At September 30, 2006, Goldcorp owed the Company $132,500 (December 31, 2005 - $nil).

CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

The Company's management, with the participation of its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, have evaluated the effectiveness of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures. Based upon the results of that evaluation, the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this report, the Company's disclosure controls and procedures were effective to provide reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports it files is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the appropriate time periods and forms. The Company's management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, believe that any disclosure controls and procedures or internal controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, they cannot provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been prevented or detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by unauthorized override of the control. The design of any systems of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Accordingly, because of the inherent limitations in a cost effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected. There has been no change in the Company's internal control over financial reporting during the Company's quarter ended September 30, 2006 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting.

FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

During the nine months ended September 30, 2006, the Company has used a mixture of cash and long-term debt to maintain an appropriate capital structure, ensuring the liquidity required to meet the needs of the business and the flexibility to continue growing through acquisition. The Company does not use interest rate contracts or other derivative financial instruments and therefore, in the normal course of business, is inherently exposed to currency, interest rate and commodity price fluctuations.

OUTLOOK

The Company expects, based upon its current contracts, to have annual silver sales of approximately 16 million ounces in 2007, increasing to 20 million ounces by 2009 and thereafter.

The Company is unhedged and actively pursuing further growth opportunities, either by way of entering into long-term silver purchase contracts, or by acquiring silver exploration, development or production assets.

Notes:

1. All Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources have been calculated as of
December 31, 2005 in accordance with the standards of the Canadian
Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum and National Instrument
43-101.

2. All Mineral Resources are exclusive of Mineral Reserves.

3. Mineral Resources which are not Mineral Reserves do not have
demonstrated economic viability.

4. The Qualified Person for the Mineral Reserve and Mineral Resource
estimates as defined by National Instrument 43-101 are as follows:

a. San Dimas, San Martin -- Reynaldo Rivera, MAusIMM, an employee of
Luismin, S.A. de C.V., the Mexican operating subsidiary of Goldcorp Inc.

b. Zinkgruvan -- John Sullivan, P.Geo., Senior Geologist and Steve
Cheeseman, P.Geo., Senior Associate Geologist, both with Watts, Griffis
and McOuat Limited of Toronto, Canada.

c. Yauliyacu -- Velasquez Spring, P.Eng., Senior Geologist, and G. Ross
MacFarlane, P.Eng., Senior Associate Metallurgical Engineer, both with
Watts, Griffis and McOuat Limited of Toronto, Canada.

5. Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources are estimated using appropriate
recovery rates and commodity prices as follows:

a. San Dimas and San Martin Reserves - US$6.00 per silver ounce

b. San Dimas and San Martin Resources - US$7.00 per silver ounce

c. Zinkgruvan Reserves and Resources - US$5.50 per silver ounce

d. Yauliyacu Reserves and Resources - US$6.00 per silver ounce

6. Silver Wheaton's purchase agreement with Glencore provides for the
delivery of 4.75 million ounces of silver per year for 20 years. Silver
production at Yauliyacu in excess of 4.75 million ounces per year is to
the credit of Glencore, and therefore a portion of the reserves and
resources from Yauliyacu may relate to production which may be for the
credit of Glencore.


CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

The information contained herein contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and applicable Canadian securities legislation. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to the future price of silver, the estimation of mineral reserves and resources, the realization of mineral reserve estimates, the timing and amount of estimated future production, costs of production, reserve determination and reserve conversion rates. Generally, these forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "plans", "expects" or "does not expect", "is expected", "budget", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate", or "believes", or variations of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will be taken", "occur" or "be achieved". Forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements of Silver Wheaton to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements, including but not limited to: risks related to the integration of acquisitions, the absence of control over mining operations from which Silver Wheaton purchases silver and risks related to these mining operations, including risks related to international operations, actual results of current exploration activities, actual results of current reclamation activities, conclusions of economic evaluations, changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined, as well as those factors discussed in the section entitled "Description of the Business - Risk Factors" in Silver Wheaton's annual information form for the year ended December 31, 2005 incorporated by reference into Silver Wheaton's Form 40-F on file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C. Although Silver Wheaton has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Silver Wheaton does not undertake to update any forward-looking statements that are incorporated by reference herein, except in accordance with applicable securities laws.

CAUTIONARY LANGUAGE REGARDING RESERVES AND RESOURCES

Readers should refer to the annual information form of Silver Wheaton for the year ended December 31, 2005 and other continuous disclosure documents filed by Silver Wheaton since January 1, 2006 available at www.sedar.com, for further information on mined Reserves and Resources, which is subject to the qualifications and notes set forth therein. Mineral Resources which are not Mineral Reserves, do not have demonstrated economic viability.

Cautionary Note to United States Investors Concerning Estimates of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources:

The information contained herein uses the terms "Measured", "Indicated" and "Inferred" Resources. United States investors are advised that while such terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. "Inferred Mineral Resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an Inferred Mineral Resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of Inferred Mineral Resources may not form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. United States investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of Measured or Indicated Mineral Resources will ever be converted into Mineral Reserves. United States investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an Inferred Mineral Resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable.

These unaudited interim consolidated financial statements do not include all the information and note disclosure required by generally accepted accounting principles for annual financial statements and therefore should be read in conjunction with the most recent annual audited consolidated financial statements.

Luismin silver purchase contract

On October 15, 2004, the Company entered into a twenty five year agreement to purchase all of the silver produced by Goldcorp's Luismin mining operations in Mexico, for an upfront payment of $36.7 million (Cdn$46.0 million) in cash and 108 million common shares of the Company. In addition, a per ounce cash payment of the lesser of $3.90 and the prevailing market price is due (subject to an inflationary adjustment commencing in 2007). Under this agreement, Luismin was required to deliver a minimum of 120 million ounces over the 25 year period following the contract date, and Silver Wheaton was obligated to pay 50% of any capital expenditures made by Luismin at its mining operations in excess of 110% of the projected capital expenditures outlined in the contract.

On March 30, 2006, Goldcorp and Silver Wheaton amended the silver purchase contract, increasing the minimum number of ounces of silver to be delivered over the 25 year period by 100 million ounces, to 220 million ounces, and waiving any capital expenditure contributions previously required to be paid by Silver Wheaton. In consideration for these amendments, Silver Wheaton issued to Goldcorp 18 million common shares, valued at the February 13, 2006 closing price of $6.42 per share, and a $20 million non-interest bearing promissory note due on March 30, 2007. As a result, at September 30, 2006, Goldcorp owned 57% of the Company's common shares.

The allocation of the total purchase price is summarized in the table below:

Under Silver Wheaton's existing Luismin agreement with Goldcorp, Silver Wheaton is entitled to purchase a 49% interest in production, development or exploration properties acquired by Goldcorp in Mexico until October 15, 2007. In connection with Goldcorp's proposed acquisition of Glamis Gold Ltd. ("Glamis"), Silver Wheaton has agreed to waive its right to acquire an interest in any of Glamis' Mexican projects. In exchange for this waiver, Goldcorp has agreed to negotiate exclusively with Silver Wheaton, for a period of 180 days from the date of Goldcorp's acquisition of Glamis, for the potential purchase by Silver Wheaton of a portion of the future production of silver to be mined from the Penasquito Project. If Silver Wheaton and Goldcorp are not successful in entering into a silver purchase agreement on the Penasquito Project during such time, Silver Wheaton will retain a right of first refusal on any future silver purchase agreements based on the Penasquito Project, for so long as Goldcorp maintains at least a 20% interest in Silver Wheaton.

Yauliyacu silver purchase contract

On March 23, 2006, the Company entered into an agreement to purchase 4.75 million ounces of silver per year for a period of 20 years, based on the production from Glencore's Yauliyacu mining operations in Peru, for an upfront payment of $285 million, comprised of $245 million in cash and a $40 million promissory note (Note 4). In addition, a cash payment of $3.90 per ounce of silver delivered under the contract is due (subject to an inflationary adjustment commencing in 2009). In the event that silver produced at Yauliyacu in any year totals less than 4.75 million ounces, the amount sold to Silver Wheaton in subsequent years will be increased to make up for the shortfall, so long as production allows.

During the term of the contract, Silver Wheaton has a right of first refusal on any future sales of silver streams from the Yauliyacu mine and a right of first offer on future sales of silver streams from any other mine owned by Glencore at the time of the initial transaction. In addition, Silver Wheaton also has an option to extend the 20 year term of the silver purchase agreement in five year increments, on substantially the same terms as the existing agreement, subject to an adjustment related to silver price expectations at the time and other factors.

The allocation of the purchase price is summarized in the table below:

4. PROMISSORY NOTES

On March 23, 2006, as partial consideration for entering into the Yauliyacu silver purchase contract (Note 3), the Company issued a $40 million promissory note to Glencore, bearing interest at 3% per annum, which was paid in full on May 31, 2006. On March 30, 2006, as partial consideration for amendments made to the Luismin silver purchase agreement (Note 3), the Company issued a non-interest bearing $20 million promissory note to Goldcorp, due on March 30, 2007. At September 30, 2006 this promissory note was still outstanding.

5. BANK DEBT

In March 2006, the Company entered into a credit agreement with the Bank of Nova Scotia, as lead arranger and administrative agent, to borrow $100 million under a non revolving term loan (the "Term Loan") and $25 million under a revolving loan (the "Revolving Loan"). During April, 2006, both the Term Loan and the Revolving Loan were repaid in full. The Term Loan was cancelled upon repayment, while the Revolving Loan facility remains available. The interest rate on the Revolving Loan is based on LIBOR plus a spread determined by the Company's leverage ratio. Under the credit agreement, the Company is required to maintain a debt service coverage ratio greater than or equal to 1.25:1 and a Leverage Ratio less than or equal to 3.50:1. The Revolving loan is secured against the Company's assets including the Luismin, Zinkgruvan and Yauliyacu silver purchase contracts. Total debt financing costs were $1,124,000, of which $10,000 was amortized to income during the three months ended September 30, 2006 (nine months ended September 30, 2006 - $939,000).
