Goldcorp says it's reached a new agreement with Wabauskang First Nation.

The mining giant says it's designed to bring benefits for the northwestern Ontario First Nation such as training and employment, but spokesperson Terry Bursey says it's more than that.

Bursey states that it also brings business opportunities and contracting opportunities as well as a framework to solve problems in the future.

This is Goldcorp's sixth First Nation partnership in Canada which they say helps strengthen collaboration for development of Red Lake Gold Mines.
