Is this a joke or something? Humanity literally cannot exist without mining "metals".

You can move mining to space but that doesn't change the need for them.

Humanity literally can exist without mining, and did for a very long time. Mining is horrible for the environment, not that you care

Humanity's history is literally defined by the metals we could mine and use.

Before metals we were, very literally, banging stones together.

So it turned out to be a good idea to move on from the stone age? It didn't stop us using stone completely, but it did allow us to progress.

Same thing going on here.

Yes we can exist without mining. Hope you're willing to give up every comfort, amenity and convenience you have. You want us to live like cavemen without any material and scrounging just to stay alive, no thanks mate.
