[[File:]]Grady & Brunt Prospects is the monolithic Colonial interstellar mining concern which holds several regional monopolies throughout the galaxy. As well as resource extraction and logistics, the corporation has invested heavily in drone, weapons, and jumpgates technologies to secure its supremacy in the industry sector. Close ties with the Colonial Fleet has drawn criticism of cronyism in the past, although there are few viable concerns capable of handling the vast task of Colonial ambitions.
Formed in mid-19th Century Earth by Oswald Grady during a gold resource rush in an area then known as California, an early partnership with another prospector by the name of William Brunt established a two-family enterprise which operated on a small local scale until the mid-21st century. In 2046 the company was inherited by a direct-descendant Zeppo Grady, considered a visionary, who quickly expanded the business outwards with the invention of asteroid-hunting drones to bring resource-rich rocks into Earth's low orbit for dismantling. The concern has continued to grow exponentially since that time. interrupted only by periodic wars and the destruction of its home state. Grady & Brunt was the first Earth-based concern to attain the title "Inter-Stellar Corporation".
Today, Grady & Brunt employs about 21 million workers in every end of Colonial claim and is vital to the continued restructuring and terraforming of the Colonial home system. Other mining operations offer some local, although trivial in reach, competition. These include Antares Deep Space Resources, Pluto Rare Metals, Astro Mining Group, and First Space Ventures Limited. Grady & Brunt, however, hold the sole contract for the Demilitarized Zone of Cluster 34, an arrangement tolerated by, although not protected by, the Okkar administration of the area. The concern utilizes private security to protect their interests in this case.
