Many visionaries have formed companies with the task of finding and unlocking the resources of our solar system. Many have also failed, like Deep Space Industries, Planetary Resources, and Shackleton Energy, because their ambitions were correct, but being early to a field is sometimes too costly on capital and expectations.
At Space Resources we focus on companies and organisations that are in it for the long haul, because only companies with that kind of foresight will survive the start-up valley of death to be in the right space place and time to be a contended to be the first space trillionaires. The following overview covers unique companies that are working towards Space Mining, with more of a leaning towards Lunar Mining, as the Moon is three days (for the Apollo Missions, but it took months for the ispace Mission 1 journey) away and its regolith contains many resources. The key is how to unlock those resources at a profit, at a time when a customer in space, or a customer back on earth, is willing to pay enough to make the operation profitable. Welcome to the world of space mining!

ispace is the most high-profile space mining company and has been commercially minded and brave in its intentions: The ispace IPO occurred before it’s first commercial mission to the Moon that crashed 80 metres from its target due to running out of fuel.
Lunar Station is a world-class provider of Lunar environmental and orbital intelligence. They provide terrain analysis to verify areas of the Moon suitable for potential Lunar Mining operations and infrastructure.
