The environmental group Pollution Probe, honoured the work of Charles Ferguson, vice-president environment, health and safety at Inco Ltd. at its annual gala dinner. The presentation was “for his lifetime achievements in improving environmental performance in the mining sector.”

The tribute read “in the 1970s Charlie was instrumental in developing Inco’s first technological response to the acid rain threat. Again in the 1980s he spearheaded a co-ordinated response from key players in the mining sector to prepare for compliance with the Canada-U.S. Acid Rain Treaty obligations that came into force in 1991.” His work on the Mine Environmental Neutral Drainage (MEND) program and his efforts for the concepts of perpetual care and financial assurance were also referred to as highlights of his “lifetime of environmental management excellence.”

In a ceremony held in Ottawa, The Most Venerable Order of St. John of Jerusalem presented Ron Rafuse, transportation superintendent at Inco Ltd.’s Sudbury operation, with a medal for his volunteer work. The head of the St. John Ambulance branch in Sudbury said Rafuse has served on the organization’s board of directors for the past five years and has been an active, enthusiastic and hard-working contributor to the organization’s health, safety and other related programs.

“I’ve been concerned about safety all my life so this was something I could do for the community,” said Ron. “I never expected an award or anything like this, but it was a real experience. I got to meet people from all over the world.” The Order of St. John is a humanitarian order, which is among the oldest charitable organizations in the world with more than 900 years of international history.
