Hydrocarbon material which have been made up in the depth of earth find their ways through some roads like falts and joints to the surface of the land, and because of pressure reduction on the surface and nearly air volatile parts are separated from solid material and ofter a while the rest is solid and it remains in those joints or falts as bitomin or natural asphalt and these consists bitomin deposits.

In Ilam region because of hydrocarbon deposits existence and techtonical structure of the region the possibility of exploring of these deposits are available. As we know that different kinds of bitomin indexes have been explored in this region, and some of these indexes such as sanery, herghotgah, ghale jogh, kohe sorkh, shorabe, melepanjab, and etc, at this time primitively are exploitated.

 After considering of province mines it has been clarified that exploration and exploitation of existional bitomin don,t follow any scientific and principally ways large amount of bitomin deposit of the province. So after considering ways of mine material construction some systematic ways to exploite in regional scale and  semi extension have been proposed, and some optimized ways to exploite and material processing of this mine material have been suggested
