Canada has unparalleled expertise in all areas of terrestrial mining. This expertise has been slowly cultivated through the creation and ongoing development of a national tax and legal infrastructure (including flow-through tax shares, the Canadian Exploration Expense and various other tools) that enable firms to engage in high risk activities requiring a high up front cost and the patience to go for decades before obtaining a return on the initial investment.
This infrastructure was and is designed to encourage a continuous stream of innovative new start-ups plus grow the existing players into a size able to compete effectively in the international marketplace.
What can space companies learn from the mining industry today? What are the timelines, constraints, costs and opportunities for profit from space resources and what can the mining industry learn from space entrepreneurs?
