The Mitchell Institute Neutrino Experiment at Reactor (MINER) has started its engineering run and expects to take scientific data by end of this year. The experiment is expected to reach 5-sigma CEvNS measurement sensitivity in approximately 6 months. Beyond the CEvNS detection, MINER will focus on a sterile neutrino search using a unique movable core that will provide 2-10 meter short baseline measurements.

Presentation given at the Magnificent CEvNS workshop (2018).
