A Lunar Registry of Activity

Lunar Resources Registry (LRR) maintains an up-to-date registry and map for Space Agencies, Science Missions, policymakers, Non-Government Organisations and Commercial entities. LRR is:

  • Provider of an online maps of activity; past, present, and future. LRR offers:
  • Public Registrations; Free for Space Agencies, Scientists, Start-ups, and Planned Missions.
  • Resources Registrations focus is finding resources to support CisLunar industries; mining, energy, and infrastructure.
  • Commercial Registrations; Defining locations for operations for exploration and extraction (e.g. Moon Mining), ISRU, Energy (Solar and Nuclear), CisLunar Infrastructure operations.
  • Missions to Lunar Locations: Complimenting a Registration is an actual Mission to a Lunar Location, in 5-10 years.

Lunar Resources Registry (LRR) focus is registering Lunar Resources for Terrestrial industries; mining, energy, and infrastructure.

To undertake impactful operations on the surface of the Moon requires extensive research, partnerships and joint-ventures to assemble the required supply-chain, and certainty.

LRR provides a clear and transparent resources registration and space legal framework that serves as a cornerstone for commercial exploration and extraction operations.

LRR integrates internal and 3rd party Lunar resources and analytical research, to create resources and complimentary infrastructure operation locations, for mining, energy and infrastructure companies who want to establish a presence on the Moon.

LRR also maintains various online maps to promote specific locations for resources, including potential ISRU or infrastructure sites.

LRR has also created a Space Resources Legal Framework to lay the groundwork for commercial space mining operations.

Since 2 years of operation, including participating in an European Space Agency Business Incubation Centre, LRR has developed a customized suite of Lunar Resources Maps and identified a growing list of Development Zones (DZ) focused on the following resources: Iron, Silicates, Titanium, Thorium and Water.

Why a Registry for the Moon?

As the Space Race evolves into Space Industrialisation, the search for off-world resources goes straight to the Moon. But how will Lunar Mining function, when multiple nations, and soon companies, are conducting expensive and revolutionary missions? The Lunar Resources Registry is the answer.

Why Resources on the Moon?

There’s two simple reasons to explore the Lunar surface for resources:
1. Water trapped in regolith can be used to produce propulsion, and support life.

2. For millennia, we have mined the Earth, now we are developing the technology to mine the Moon: It can provide us with rare elements, like platinum group metals, without environmental consequences.

Our Mission: Order from Chaos, with Collaboration!

  • Space Agencies: Going to the Moon? Let us know! We’ll add you to our Public Registry.
  • Lunar NGO / policymakers: Get in contact, and we can co-ordinate our activities. Get on our Moon Map Public Registry.
  • Space Resources Prospectors: We can Register as a Service high-value locations.
  • Space Resources Exploration and Extraction: We can Register as a Service and help build Mission profiles and payloads to specific locations.

We work closely with specific partners to determine the authenticity of our Registrations.
LRR and selected Partners work together to create:

  • Partnership Registrations: A LRR Registration, including Lunar analytical information specific to the Registration, including but not limited to terrain, resources in comparison to other data sets, and options for future enhanced information, such as higher resolution imagery when available.
  • Missions to Lunar Locations: We estimate that in 5-10 years Missions can be undertaken to targetted Lunar Locations.

Data Sources

The LRR has multiple data sources, on this website we provide a partial list.
