Selenium belongs to the so called essential biological microelements which has a great impact on health of people depending on whether its councentration is small or high. Absence o selenium in human results in endemic cardiomiopathia known as Keshan disease (Chen. et al. 1980). Higher selenium concentration (in human blood or some food) lowers development of cancer body (Shamberger et al. 1976). No data have been published in the Republic of Macedonia concerning selenium presence or individual environments. Our aim was to determine selenium presence in sediments along the reaches of the River Zletovica and its tributaries because it is known that waste from mine pits and lead zinc flotation plants of Zletovo Mines in the town of Probistip flow into it.
