Hi guys, I am currently working in Northern Greece for a few weeks and wondered if anyone knew of any mines around the Arta area?

Regards

Dave

Quite scarce by the looks of things, lots of hydrocarbon stuff going off but not much metal mining since ancient times. Only had a quick look online but really not much to find it seems...

We did find quite a lot of stuff on Cyprus and the SCMC has records of that

I have put the question out on Mining History forum you never know
