Simplest way I know: Conductivity = 1 / Resistance. All you need is a slide rule. :-) But seriously,

Alan's method ... charge a capacitor to a known voltage, discharge it through the mat to a lower voltage measuring how long it takes, and use the RC time constant to calculate the resistance ... is about the simplest and maybe the most ingenious.

I stand corrected.  I didn't realize the resistance was that great.

I need to think of a simple way to determine conductivity rather than
 measuring the resistance.

Thanks for the answers.
