Technology Innovation Hub

Promoting CPS Technologies in Mining and Exploration

About TEXMiN

Technology Innovation in Exploration & Mining Foundation (TEXMiN) is a section-8 company created under the aegis of the National Mission on Interdisciplinary Cyber-Physical Systems (NM-ICPS) programme by the Department of Science and Technology, Govt of India established at IIT (ISM) Dhanbad. The objective of TEXMiN is to develop commercially feasible solutions for the mineral exploration and mining domain using cyber-physical systems such as IoT, AI/ML, blockchain, drones, robotics, and satellite imagery.

The following are significant aims of the TexMin Hub:
(i) Make India a leading player in CPS technologies in Exploration & Mining.
(ii) Achieve translation of CPS technologies in Exploration & Mining for socio-economic growth and commercial use, nurture start-ups, and increase the job market.
(iii) Produce next-generation technocrats for developing CPS technologies in Exploration & Mining and their implementation to make Indian mines more innovative, safe and sustainable.

The objective of TEXMiN is to achieve 3S Mining (Safe, Smart and Sustainable Mining leading to Mining 4.0) through operation & process optimization across the mining value chain.
