Mining Final Frontiers: Space, Arctic & Deep Sea Ventures
Arctic, deep sea and space mining will increasingly gain popularity in the coming decades. As traditional and known reserves start to deplete and ore grades fall, rising mineral prices will enable riskier projects to gain commercial viability, significantly rewarding pioneers with the technological know-how and capital. These first movers will drive progress and dominate competitive landscapes initially, whilst others move to follow in their footsteps.
This report focuses on the trends developing in mining of the final frontiers, namely the arctic, deep seas and space that will increasingly gain popularity in the coming years. The coverage on each frontier is extensive, with key players and project timelines being discussed, risks and rewards analysed and pressing issues highlighted.
