Much of money is to flow to the First Nation over 10 years through contracts with band-owned businesses and wages to band members who would work at the mines and on community development projects.

Part of the agreement calls for the First Nation to drop a lawsuit over land near the proposed Millennium mine project.

Some members of the band have raised concerns about the environmental impact of more uranium in the area.
