Why would you want to mine in Copernicus Crater and not in Mare Tranquillitatis? From your picture, it is there where the whole mining operation should have been...(the bluest area of all the areas)
Mostly because of the "ifs" I think.
Mare Tranquillitatis sure looks like another rich place. I wonder how the digging is there?
If the Maria are formed by volcanic outflows, and are relatively new features, It might be hard to break the surface.
I just said to myself, if the moon is rich in titanium, and the densest location is near/under Copernicus. What if I were to go there, and collect what has already been blasted for me?
