It would have gravitationally interacted with every solar system it passed through. If it were so close it hadn't, we likely wouldn't be here either.

It's true that we don't know what may be on an asteroid in terms of biological organisms...but odds are, they weren't chunks from a former planet that could have had some biological organisms develop, but instead is probably just random small chunks of matter that gradually formed and broke apart as they collided with other asteroids. A very cold chunk of iron sitting in space with no atmosphere.
Hence not very interesting for mining purposes. A chunk of a supernova -- even billions of years old, from the other side of this galaxy, or from another galaxy, would be more likely to contain something worth the price of obtaining. (Unobtainium? )

We are all star dust, x-supernova circling a 2nd or 3rd generation star.
