This episode features the induction of the Eberhard (“Ebe”) Scherkus to the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame. The ceremony took place at the Metro Convention Centre in Toronto on Jan. 9, 2020.

The success and longevity of Agnico Eagle Mines owes much to Eberhard (“Ebe”) Scherkus, who joined the company as a project manager in 1985, became chief operating officer (COO) in 1998, and was president and COO from 2005 until he retired in 2012. During this period, he transformed Agnico Eagle from a regional single-mine company into a top-performing global gold producer, expanding the company’s La Ronde project into a productive mine that has produced 5 million oz. gold. Scherkus has received many awards and honours for his achievements, including the Viola McMillan Award from PDAC in 2000, and the Selwyn G. Blaylock Medal from CIM in 2005.

All this and more with online editor and host Adrian Pocobelli.
