The moon - perhaps a filling station in the future
NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine recently said it clearly: "It is important that we can return to the Moon." For decades there was no present on the moon. But now various countries are directing their interests back to the moon. Space voyages that are ever more distant and ever more frequent are now within reach. The moon could act as a kind of gas station for this.
In addition, the moon used to be part of the Earth and therefore there may be economically viable raw materials there. Basically, the elements on the moon are the same as those on our home planet.
As early as 2009, NASA shot a hole out of the moon with a rocket and used a spectrometer to investigate the cloud released by the explosion. Gold, silver, titanium and an isotope known as helium-3 were found, which could be used in nuclear fusion. Water vapour and ice - important for oxygen, hydrogen and rocket fuel - were also discovered.
So the interest in the moon and the presence there is no longer surprising. India and China will launch lunar missions before the end of this year. Maybe the United States will join them, too. As long as the economic viability of mining raw materials ("space mining") is not yet given, valuable raw materials must still be sought by mining companies on earth. Like Treasury Metals or Sibanye-Stillwater.
Treasury Metals - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298722 - is already, with the participation of the local population, in the approval process for its Goliath gold project (100 percent sole ownership) in Ontario. According to estimates, 1.3 million ounces have to be extracted from the earth.
Sibanye-Stillwater - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298805, already a major producer of gold, platinum and palladium, is also making good progress. The company focuses particularly on South Africa (Witwatersrand Basin) and the north of the USA. Palladium has risen sharply in price and there should be a supply deficit in the current year.
