Raglan Mine and Sudbury INO Take Home Safety Awards

Author: Glencore Canada | Date: 03/06/2022

On May 3, 2022, our Raglan Mine was awarded the 2021 John T. Ryan National Trophy for Metal Mines for the best safety performance in Canada from the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), while Nickel Rim South Mine (NRS), part of our Sudbury INO, was awarded the 2021 John T. Ryan Regional Metal Trophy for the Province of Ontario.

Raglan Mine is taking home this prestigious Canada-wide award for the third year in a row and the fourth time since they began operations, a special way to add to their existing 25th anniversary celebrations this year. No stranger to the Ontario Regional trophy, NRS previously won the John T. Ryan Award in 2017, 2014 and 2013 demonstrating their enduring commitment to safety.
