INTRODUCTION
The International Nickel Company of Canada, Limited, is a combination of two things - important nickel deposits, plus a state of mind.
By "state of mind" is meant the belief that an ore deposit is of no value unless someone finds a way to work it, and to sell his work, profitably and successfully. It also means that excepting as we place limitations upon ourselves by lack of imagination, or by an unwillingness to really work, there are no physical limits to the possibilities of the market for nickel.
In the early days of the company, Ambrose Monell, the first president of the company, went to Sudbury with an associate. Standing by the Creighton open pit, about all they heard was talk of the enormous amount of nickel in the district, and so enthusiastic were the estimates that, tugging at Monell's coat sleeve, the associate said: "Well, Andy, all we need now is customers."
This situation of needing customers is one that has recurred through the entire history of the nickel business. It occurred in 1880, when world consumption was less than 1,000 tons; it was true in 1921, when world consumption was about 10,000 tons; it was true in 1958 when free world consumption dropped to about 160,000 tons from approximately 207,500 tons in 1957. It will be true again.
Our attitude always has been that sufficient nickel resources can be discovered to supply the world's needs and that there can be created enough nickel business for all the nickel the world will produce - and everyone should work for his share as hard as we work for our share. The very effort of working for our share is what keeps - and will keep - the company from settling down at any level.
