In the study, the content of heavy metals such as Pb, Cd, Ni, Cu, Zn and Mn in the soils collected from various regions of the Lublin Voivodeship was examined. The examined soils were light medium soils. Content of individual elements was determined by the AAS method in the extracts of 1 M HCl. The analysed soils were poor in copper and manganese. Their concentration and the concentration of lead, cadmium and nickel was in the lower realms of the range natural for light soils formed from sands. Only the content of zinc was fairly high in the above soils, frequently as high as the first degree of contamination.
