Royal Gold, Inc. USA) (NASDAQ:RGLD) core business entails giving miners of silvers and gold advance financing consequently receiving a cut on the back-end, once the actual metal is extracted.

Royal Gold risks from a business perspective are considerably reduced’ as it does not have to keep up with constant strikes of miners, outages or any operational costs in the mining fields.

“We don’t have to share on the operating costs activities or operating activities and coast associated with the capital. One of the things’ that has pressured miners over the last few years is that capital costs that have gone over budget, operating costs and margins have squeezed, and we just simply don’t have that in our element of business” said Mr. Jensen.

Royal Gold, Inc. USA) (NASDAQ:RGLD)’s royalties are based only on the top line and on the fact that the company has minimal exposure to operating costs with the only worry being the normal wait for production from mines.
