The paper deals with an overview of the state of art in using microwaves for assist hard rock cutting with mechanical means. The information provided consist on actual findings of researches previously performed in this field, from the literature review, which represents the start elements in the recently started MIWACUT project in the frame of ERAMIN-2 programme, financed jointly by EU and national research agency (UEFISCDI).
