The paper provides an outline of localities in the area of Podravina with evidence of races of remains of furnaces for iron ore or surface findings that can be connected with smelting activity discovered during systematic archeological research or field inspections. Previous archeological research proved the functioning of smelting plants in the area of Podravina during late antique period and early Middle Ages, whereas surface findings of ceramics indicate their possible functioning throughout the entire Middle ages. Based on collected data the paper describes individual positions and wider zones with recognized smelting activities. Geomorphological characteristics of wider area of individual localities were also observed, and together with microtopography they played a significant role during selection of locality for administration of smelting activities. Based on the afore mentioned parameters it is possible to make conclusions regarding the reasons of positioning the respective smelting plants on those particular locations.
