The area of Lavrion, south part of Attica, is important in Greece for its mining and industrial history. Ancient times mining activity and metallurgical processing has left galleries and circular laundries for enrichment, tanks for the water used and forges for melting. A geophysical survey has the target to detect walls and tanks in an area near Keratea city some ancient installations have been revealed by archaeological excavation. Electromagnetic measurements with a conductivity meter have found elongated features of low conductivity (walls) and circular features of high conductivity (tanks full of conductive material). ERT and GPR sections have approved these results giving additional quantitative information. The results can be used as guideline in future archaeological excavation.
