In the survey carried out in Sadrabad area of Zarandieh in June 2020 , in addition to the whole village of Sadrabad, its satellite areas were also examined and identified, which led to remarkable results in the archaeological studies of the Iranian plateau, which in addition to other archaeological survey , Metal slags were also studied and analyzed there. . The silicate minerals in the slag are studied in passing light using a thin section prepared. Gazanak Zarandieh Site is located 85 km from Tehran and 75 km from Saveh in Sadrabad Vilage in Zarandieh city of Markazi province. In this survey , we obtained evidence of smelting and processing of copper metal, which included pure native copper and slag from smelting of this metal, which by integrating them for laboratory studies, especially petrographic elemental analysis, which resulted in amazing results.The purpose of petrographic testing on study samples is to identify the components of the slag, the type of material extracted and, if possible, the host rock mineral. Since the study area lacks Chalcolithic age, and the abundance of plum Ware, which appeared in the context of Cheshmeh Ali pottery and the transition period according to the speculation of the 2021 season, led us to the question that melting and extraction Copper metal in the center of the Iranian plateau has an older history than the dates presented in this article.
