The 1998 Moore Medal Award  

Awarded To: Marne Dubs

For distinction in the development of marine minerals.
Kennecott Corporation, Industry Leader, Diplomat, and Visionary

As leader of the marine minerals effort for the Kennecott Consortium (KCON), Marne Dubs became one of the key figures in negotiations at the United Nations Law of the Sea Convention, to clarify and achieve a balanced framework to accommodate the needs and rights of both industrial and less developed nations. Although the Treaty had not yet been ratified by the United Stales, the rights for which Mr. Dubs and others labored, so hard and long were finally adopted by the United Nations in amendments passed by consensus after the treaty became Law.
