Welcome to the Lunar Resources Registry

The Lunar Resources Registry (LRR) enables commercial and non-commercial organisations to acquire rights to explore and extract resources.
The LRR provides actionable data, insight and records about the available resources on the moon. These insights in terms of the size, grade, volume, and location of any given resource will give a better understanding to support investment decisions in exploration and possible extraction missions of lunar resources.
The LRR has developed a Registry Platform, as well as the necessary Legal and Policy Frameworks, to give a Space Resources a base from which to grow.

Current development is focussed on:

Public Registrations, e.g. Space agencies

Register With Us

Commercial Registrations, e.g. Resources companies

Expression of Interest for Lunar Resources

Space Agencies, Non-Profits

‣ LRR will register Space Agencies existing and prospective landing zones, as non-commercial / restricted areas.
‣ LRR will register Heritage locations as off-limits, due to their cultural significance.
‣ Agencies and Public Organisations can easily lodge a registation.

Visit our Public Registrations section.

Space Resources and Commodities companies

‣ Private companies (Space focussed Mining, Energy and Infrastructure) need a 3rd party verifier of their resources and locations claims.
‣ LRR can locate and estimate resources potential (size, grade, location), assist in the Due Diligence process, therefore confirming business models, e.g. Viability of extracting Hydrogen and the technology required.
‣ LRR can offer legal guidance and mediation as public and commercial claims intensify.

Visit our Commerical Registrations section, inlcuding express your interest in creating a Portfolio of Lunar Resources locations.

Updates

9th February 2021 - Lunar Resources Registry UG is participating in the ESA Business Incubation Centre Hessen & Baden-Wuerttemberg.

The Lunar Resources Registry has been selected to become part of the European Space Agency Business Incubation Centre in Hessen, Gremany, in 2021. The ESA BIC in Darmstadt is manage by CESAH.

16-17 September 2020 - The LRR will be attending the virtual ESA Industry Space Day

The Growing Momentum for Registrations

The Artemeis Accords - Registration of Space Objects
Registration is at the very core of creating a safe and sustainable environment in space to conduct public and private activities. Without proper registration, coordination to avoid harmful interference cannot take place.
The Artemis Accords reinforces the critical nature of registration and urges any partner which isn’t already a member of the Registration Convention to join as soon as possible.

ESA - In-Situ Resource Utilisation
Local resources produced on the Moon and Mars can be used for life support and power systems, propellant production, or building habitats. The extraction and processing of local resources into useful products and services on another celestial body is often referred to as In-Situ Resource Utilisation (ISRU).
ESA is working to understand the opportunities ISRU can offer to future exploration and to prepare through research, technology and missions.
If you have an academic or commercial interest in the Lunar Resources Registry and would like to add a location of interest, please get in contact..
