VANCOUVER, May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - GOLDCORP INC. (TSX: G, NYSE: GG) today announced that Russell Ball will join the Company's senior management team as Executive Vice President, Capital Management.  Ball, 45, was most recently Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Newmont Mining Corporation. In his new role, Ball will lead the focus on financial discipline within Goldcorp's project team as the Company continues to advance construction at Cerro Negro in Argentina, Éléonore in Quebec and Cochenour near Red Lake in Ontario.  His group will also lead development at the Company's next generation of gold growth projects and work with Goldcorp's operations teams on project management at existing mines.

Ball brings with him a vast knowledge of the mining industry and has worked as a financial executive in both projects and operations. Over his 19 years with Newmont, he worked in audit, finance, treasury and investor relations before joining the executive team as Chief Financial Officer in 2007.
