The aim of the MIMAC project is to detect non-baryonic Dark Matter with a directional TPC. The recent Micromegas efforts towards building a large size detector will be described, in particular the characterization measurements of a prototype detector of 10 × 10 cm2 with a 2 dimensional readout plane. Track reconstruction with alpha particles will be shown.
