Space Mining & ISRU Services

For over 20 years, WGM has been actively involved with the In-situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) community. We have assisted in technology development, advised National governments, and advised space agencies, private companies and academia on a myriad of topics related to space mining.


WGM’s team of exploration geologists, geophysicists, and geomatics experts and our network of multiple hardware, service and launch providers can assist with the development of cost effective and impactful off-world exploration programs.

Production Planning and Optimization

Our team of professionals can bring WGM’s trusted expertise in terrestrial exploration and mining environments, to assist in designing and costing production planning for off-world settings. Mining in space must accommodate low-gravity, lack of atmosphere, dust, radiation, and extreme thermal flux. WGM can de-risk your project by both designing and advising on all aspects of your production planning to maximize your success.

Advisory and Regulatory Advice

WGM has actively participated in the development of current global technical standards and regulatory governance for the exploration and mining industry. Our experts remain at the forefront of advising governments, supra-national agencies, space agencies, and academics in steering the development of framework agreements for International space exploration and mining. When contemplating your project, seek advice from the trusted professionals at WGM.

WGM Water Works – Lunar Exploration Planning Group (WWG)

WGM has assembled a ground breaking research and development group, the Water Works Group (“WWG”).  This group is comprised of planetary geologists, geophysicists, geomatics experts and sedimentologists whom work to develop cutting edge Lunar water and volatile depositional models along with unique prospecting and exploration methods which allow for orbital and surface detection of water and volatile resources.
