Re: What resources on the moon ...

There are some reasonably new (discovered within the last decade) steel making processes that produce oxygen as a by product.

Given the Moon has a similar geological makeup to the Earth, being able to produce both steel and oxygen at the same time would provide more than enough incentive to setup shop up there. Producing new space ships on the Moon, for example, with its much lower gravity makes much more sense than building them on Earth.
