ROMAN MINING TECHNOLOGY

One of the most important mining areas of gold of all Roman Empire can be found in northern Portugal. The impressive marks of this exploration and the technology employed can still be observed on site. Huge work fronts in the open, deep galleries and a complex hydraulic network of channels still make quite an impression nowadays for its size and conservation status . Many of the most valuable coins minted in Rome during the first and the second centuries AD had gold mined in this mining territory - the most important of Roman Portugal .
