The Space Resources Roundtable

Leading Discussion for In-Situ Resource Utilization



Joining individuals from the space exploration community, the financial sector, and mining and minerals industries, the SRR seeks to bring together interested parties to discuss issues related to the In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) of lunar, asteroidal and martian resources.

The Roundtable is a continuing series of such engagements, each designed to strengthen the communication and technical ties between these sectors.

The 4th joint meeting of the Planetary & Terrestrial Mining Sciences Symposium (PTMSS) and the The Space Resources Roundtable (SRR) was held on May 5-8, 2013 in conjunction with the Canadian Institute of Mining (CIM) 2013 Convention in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Besides technical presentations and open-discussion sessions, there were keynote speakers from Planetary Resources, Moon Express, Deep Space Industries, and Shackleton Energy, four private sector companies actively engaged in exploration and extraction of space resources. In addition, conference attendees had the opportunity to see more than a dozen booths with space mining equipment and technology, which shared the exhibit floor with hundreds of traditional mining companies.

Proceedings and pictures of the conference are now available.

The impact of this year's PTMSS/SRR conference was appropriately captured by the following web stories published by The Commercial Space Blog and the Canadian Institute of Mining, respectively:
