Dan Gagnon received the Ontario Mine Rescue Distinguished Action Award from Tim Maloney of Vale, and Candys Ballanger-Michaud, president and chief executive officer of Workplace Safety North. Gagnon, a mine rescuer from Vale’s Garson Mine, performed CPR and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to save a three-year-old child while on vacation near Kapuskasing in June 2010. He is only the third recipient of the award, first given in 2006 and intended for any mine rescuer who saves a life under any circumstances.
