Welcome to the Lunar Resources Register

The Lunar Resources Register's (LRR) business model is to provide actionable information about resources on the Lunar Surface, so that resources (by size, grade, location) can be better understood to support investment in exploration missions and eventually the extraction of resources.
To make all this possible we have developed our own Platform and Legal and Policy Framework.

Zones for Resources on the Moon

The Lunar Resources Register ultimate goal is to use the resources on the Moon to maintain bases, and service missions and operations throughout the solar system.

Key resources of interest are titanium, iron, silicon, aluminium, water, oxygen, hydrogen and Helium-3.
Key locations range from easy to access, to difficult to access but valuable; shadowed craters that may have deposits of water.

Space agencies and companies gather precise data about the surface of the Moon.
Space Resources entrepreneurs have vague business propositions regarding commercialising the Moon.
There is public interest, from investors too, in real operations.
The Lunar Surface is the next logical target. Terrestrial mining companies are under increasing pressure to avoid environmental damage, and facing technical extremes, e.g. drilling deeper underground. For miners, the Antarctic and undersea mining is largely off-limits. At some point a resource on the Lunar surface may have such a high value there could be a business model to extract said resource and transport it to a market place.
Major economic powerhouses (US, Europe, China, Russia, Japan, India) have conducted Lunar operations, their space programs require a political destination backed up by commercial objectives; these are big budget and high profile missions.
Their various orbiters and landers form a trend that is unmistakable, the first priority is establishing a nations technical prowess (reaching the destination) but following behind is the commercial practicality of such missions and activities.
The trend from a resources point of view is to find locations of value on the Lunar surface, these locations may be ideal points for Earth-Moon communication, generating energy, or permanently shadowed areas that may have the building blocks of water. The trend is increased Lunar activity, leading to inevitable sovereign and commercial claims.

Lunar Resources Register Platform

The LRR has been developed using publically available Lunar surface data and proprietry locations; the end result is a platform that can be used to register intent and acknowledge the previous detection of targetted resources.

Lunar Resources Legal and Policy Framework on the Moon

Lunar Resources Register Legal and Policy Framework

Activities on the Moon are subject to various layers of agreements and policy, the LRR Legal and Policy Framework is designed to navigate existing legal and policy components to allow for the registraton of entities that wish to explore and extract resources.
