   Economic Geology is scientific discipline concerned with the distribution of mineral deposits, the economic considerations involved in their recovery, and an assessment of the reserves available. In this way, different methods of mineral analysis, geophysical and geochemical survey and processing are required. Based on archeological studies, gold is the first understood metal, which has been collected directly from rivers, and copper is the first melted metal by peoples. The history of copper discovery is challengeable. Some refer the discovery of copper to 20000 BC and 12000 BC in Egypt. Also there are some notations for copper utilization and smelting by preliminary Iranians 9000 BC. Some archeologists believe that Iranians in
    Tal-e-Eblis of Kerman did first extraction and smelting of copper.
   Old workings and mining in central-eastern and northern Iran are the oldest metallurgical activities. Latest years of 7 thousands BC is the starting period of Neolithic in Iran but the Paleolithic times continued to 4000 years BC. In 1966, it was exhibited a turquoise sheep in France as the symbol of 7000 years old art of Iran. The old smelting furnaces with the slag are abundant in Alborz and Zagros Mountains plus Yazd, Kerman, Qom, Kashan, Khorasan and Sistan Va Baluchestan like Chehel Kureh copper slags and lead-zinc abandoned mines between Kharestan and Bidester of Taftan.
