VANCOUVER, Aug. 19, 2013  /PRNewswire/ - Sandstorm  Gold Ltd. ("Sandstorm"  or 
the "Company") (NYSE MKT:SAND, TSX:SSL)  has amended the previously  announced 
gold stream  agreement  (the "Amended  Gold  Stream") with  Mutiny  Gold  Ltd. 
("Mutiny") (ASX:MYG). Mutiny  is developing the  Deflector project located  in 
the Murchison Region of Western Australia ("Deflector").

In accordance with the Amended Gold  Stream, Sandstorm has agreed to  purchase 
an amount equal to 2.6% of the gold produced from Deflector in exchange for an
upfront payment of US$6 million  (the "Upfront Payment"). The Upfront  Payment 
was previously remitted  to Mutiny  in the  form of a  loan, so  there are  no 
additional payments that are required to be made by Sandstorm.


Sandstorm Gold Ltd. is  a gold streaming  company. Sandstorm provides  upfront 
financing for gold mining companies that are looking for capital and in return
receives a gold streaming agreement. This agreement gives Sandstorm the  right 
to purchase a percentage of the life of mine gold produced, at a fixed  price. 
Sandstorm is a non-operating gold mining company with a portfolio of ten  gold 
streams, six of which  are producing gold, and  five NSR royalties.  Sandstorm 
plans to  grow and  diversify  its low  cost  production profile  through  the 
acquisition of additional gold streams.

Sandstorm is  focused  on  low  cost  operations  with  excellent  exploration 
potential and strong management teams.  Sandstorm has completed gold  purchase 
or royalty agreements with  Brigus Gold Corp.,  Canadian Zinc Corp.,  Colossus 
Minerals Inc., Columbus Gold Corp., Donner Metals Ltd., Entrée Gold Inc., Luna
