ABSTRACT
A study of soil composition is performed in an area of 10 km2 in the southeastern part of Drenasi ranging region from Ferronickel Complex in the distance of 10 Km. The area is known for silicate minerals of nickel, therefore established the aforementioned Complex. Agricultural lands are the main source of food production for humans and animals, so land conservation from poisoning is necessity of time. Kosovo and as many developing countries have environmental problems. During this study we analyzed 20 soil samples taken at depths up to 30 cm of arable land and 20 samples of soil profile. Results indicate the concentrations of some heavy metals (Ni, Cr, Zn, Pb). The largest concentrations were observed near the Ferronickel Complex. Values are as follows: Ni (43.35 – 591.75 ppm), Pb (8.92 – 49.95 ppm) and Zn (28.26 – 62.73 ppm). All soil samples for the determination of heavy metals in Aqua Regia ICP are measured in the Laboratory "Agrovet" in Fushë Kosovë. The purpose of this paper is to determine the contents of heavy metals in soil.

Keywords: Heavy metals, Samples, Pollution, Drenas, Kosovo.
