Résume  We prove that generically in $\diff^{1}_{m}(M)$, if an expanding $f$invariant foliation $W$ of dimension $u$ is minimal and there is a periodic point of unstable index $u$, the foliation is stably minimal. By this we mean there is a $C^{1}$neighborhood $\U$ of $f$ such that for all $C^{2}$diffeomorphisms $g\in \U$, the $g$invariant continuation of $W$ is minimal. In particular, all such $g$ are topologically mixing. Moreover, all such $g$ have a hyperbolic ergodic component of the volume measure $m$ which is essentially dense. This component is, in fact, Bernoulli.
We provide new examples of stably minimal diffeomorphisms which are not partially hyperbolic.
