The second phase of archaeological studies in the sources of the Halilrud river in the Kerman province focuses on the metal works industry and mining in thousands of years ago.

Head of the archaeological team Hossein Towfiqian added they were going to ascertain the cultural association between the sources and the neighbouring areas including Jiroft.

"The mining and metal works history in the area in millennia before Christ is determined by looking at the dispersal of metal wastes, ancient foundries and metal mines," he noted.

The experts will use various techniques including computer imaging in the project. The first phase of studies has rendered findings on foundries, metal works and mining, which indicate a developed metal works in the millennia before Christ.

The Halilrud river originates in the Hezar and Laleh Zar mountains, stretching some 400 km to reach the Jazmurian river. Along its route, some 480 historical sites have been located.
