The paper presents investigations carried out on the possible effects of the Alshar AsSb-TI-Au-Ba deposit on the water of Lake Tikves. Lake Tikves is the largest artificial water reservoir in this part of the Republic of Macedonia and plays an important role in the development of agriculture in the region and the municipality of Kavadarci. Lake Tikves is constructed on the Cma River, which is the largest water artery that receives most of the waters in the western region of the country. The River Blasnica empties into Lake Tikves below the village of Klinovo carrying the waters of the westem parts of Mts. Kozuf and Kozjak. It receives the waters of the Majdanska, Portska, and Kozamic. The River Mjadanska flows through the central part of the Alsar mineralized zone and through numerous earlier dumps of waste material abundant in As, TI, Sb, Pb and Zn. Investigations carried out regarding the present state at the Alshar mine indicate that it does not have a large impact on the waters in Lake Tikves and that it is important to protect the balance.
