Training For First Nation Students in the Ring of Fire

A handful of students from a Northern Ontario First Nation have completed a Mining Essentials Training Program.

Cliffs Natural Resources along with Oshki Training and Education Institute offered the program to 14 youth from Webequie.

Oshki Executive Director Rosie Mosquito says the students were able to learn about what it's going to be like to work in the Ring of Fire.

Mosquito says Cliffs has made a commitment that there will be an intent to hire the students who graduate
from the program.
