    There is oil, gold, diamonds and uranium on Earth. And in all cases, however depleted the resources may be, they can still be far more economically mined on Earth than on Mars.

    Where would you sell it ??

    Earth ?

    After up to a year long's haul and re-entry and all that and what it would cost ?

    Uranium to produce power maybe

    Maybe some travelling Intergalactic Barf Bunnies might pass through

    no because the cost of mining it would be far far more that the value of same. so no

    No. Simply because the cost of shipping it back to Earth woudl be prohibitive. It would be easier and cheaper to mine heavy metals from metallic asteroids, and even that is currently barely technologically feasible and economically dubious.
