G.Tsulukidze Mining Institute

General Information

G.Tsulukidze Mining Institute (TMI), formerly known as the Institute of Mining Mechanics of the Georgian Academy of Sciences was founded in 1957. Currently the Institute having the LPPL status under the Ministry of Science and Education of Georgia, employs about 75 scientists with advanced degrees. Traditionally the Institute has been doing basic and applied research for the mining industry. An expertise, still exists in the development of explosives, novel materials, explosive and shock-wave physics, explosive strengthening and consolidation, minerals processing and enriching technologies, and mining ecology.

Institute’s Focus

The Institute has restructured to focus on major application areas demanded by the industry: construction of underground structures, underground and opencast mining of mineral deposits, investigation of rock properties, mineral processing and treatment of wastes.

The Institute has an Underground Experimental base for testing explosives with up to 100 kg of the TNT equivalent. Other equipment includes presses (TechPress2TM hydraulic-pneumatic automatic mounting press), test benches, optical microscopes, X-ray diffraction system X1 (Scintag, USA), and metallographic, chemical, and diagnostic laboratory equipment.

Valuable Technology Offerings

  • Underground constructions design methods and building technologies theoretical principles;
  • Rational adoption methods for layer (bedded) and vessel type (lode) deposits;
  • Underground constructions explosion effect protection systems;
  • Investigation of mining enterprises environmental problems and ways of their solution;
  • Advanced technologies for open cast mining carrying out;
  • Formation of new ecologically friendly industrial explosives;
  • Pipe-line hydro-transportation systems, safe and reliable operation complex events, pipeline electricity transportation system transient regimes;
  • The ropeway transportation means, lifting transport devices and mechanisms;
  • New efficient technology of water cleaning from oil by film flotation.

Scientific Cooperation and Technology Transfer

The Mining Institute has close international scientific collaboration with research centers and Institutes of EU Countries: Germany (Clausthal University of Technology), Greece, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Bulgaria, Czech Republic; USA (Los- Alamos National Laboratory, US Army Research Laboratory, Georgia Institute of Technology, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, University of San Diego); Russia (Semenov's Institute of Chemical Physics in Chernogolovka, Institute of High Pressure, Novosibirsk Institute of Hydrodynamics); Ukraine (Paton's Institute of Electrical Welding, Dnipropetrovsk State Design Bureau "Yuzhnoye", Rocket Motors Department), etc.

In recent years the Institute has participated in a number of scientific projects funded by International Science & Technology Center, Science and Technology Center in Ukraine, US Civilian Research & Development Foundation, NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme (SPS), INTAS.
