The 1998 Moore Medal Award  

Awarded To: John Shaw

For distinction in the development of marine minerals.
International Nickel Co., Ltd., Industry Leader, Internationalist, and Visionary

International Nickel Co. was quick to realize that manganese nodules were a potential ore of nickel, and were thus in potential competition with the nickel empire the company controlled in Canada. John Shaw’s steady hand at the helm of INCO's program laid the groundwork of credibility as the company formed Ocean Management Incorporated (OMI) an international consortium which included one Canadian, one U.S., three German, and 19 Japanese companies. Leader of one of the four US pioneers in the Clarion Clippcrton Zone, Mr. Shaw left his mark in technology, diplomacy, and management.
