Gaziemir district of Izmir, the Aegean Free Zone, is an industry center of approximately 295 companies that operate in lots of fields such as production, maintenance-repair, trade and that provide 1/3 of total employment in 21 free zones in Turkey. In this study, magnetic susceptibility values of soil samples taking from environment of various factories in Aegean Free Zone have been determined. Magnetic susceptibilities of samples in low and high frequency have been measured by Bartington MS2B magnetic susceptibility measurement device. All of the samples have showed ferromagnetic characteristics and also their pseudosingle-domain structures and super paramagnetic granule additives have been determined by evaluating their graphics connected to frequency.
