Kožuf metallogenic district is significantly affected by former exploration and exploitation which lead to increased concentrations of heavy metals in individual environmental components. These metals can enter into water environment by leaching, acid main drainage, erosion and sedimentation. Water and soil analyses of Kozuf metallogenic district performed by the team of Faculty of Natural and Technical Sciences (University “Goce Delčev”-Štip, Macedonia) and GIS-GEOINDUSTRY (Czech Republic) in 2013 detected increased concentrations of Sb, As and Tl. Health risks of these metals in drinking water as well as their legal limits are discussed.
