While Silver Wheaton (NYSE:SLW) remains one of the best-run companies in the silver sector, the company recently diversified by buying a series of gold streams. One of these gold streams was to come from Barrick Gold's (NYSE:ABX) Pascua-Lama mine that was recently delayed by roughly a year and a half due to cash concerns. While news for precious metals has been somewhat improved lately, particularly from the Federal Reserve, this is not great news for Silver Wheaton.

In the video below, Fool.com contributor Doug Ehrman discusses the developments at Pascua-Lama and their ramifications for Silver Wheaton.
