The heavy metals content of soils where determined in Gombe state, North-Eastern Nigeria, the heavy metals analyzed in this study are, Cd, Cr, Pb, and Zn using an Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS), Perkin Elmer 400ASS (9). A general over view of the study shows that Pb had the highest concentration, and Cr had the least concentration. The trend of heavy metals in the study is as follows; Cr < Cd < Zn < Pb. the result of the heavy metal analysis shows that the concentrations of heavy metals in the soils at the study sites where below the permissible limits of the various metals for soil and thus are of no environmental or health consequences and the soil is relatively safe for cultivation of agricultural crops.
