This study was conducted to detect metals especially heavy metals like Cobalt, Antimony, Lead, Iron and Manganese in water samples obtained from ground water in district Mastung, Balochistan Pakistan, between 66°11'34"- 67°25'59" East Longitudes and 29°20'13"- 30°15'8" North Latitudes. Analysis of 07 water sample was done through Atomic absorption spectroscopy to look at different physicochemical parameters, for example EC, TDS, pH, and saltiness the values of TDS and saltiness were within the range of EPA and WHO limits pH of Spezant (metha) Mastung was more than EPA and WHO limits while the conductivity of Spezant (metha) Mastung and Spezant (karva) Mastung was higher than WHO limits. The study shows that the values of Co, Fe, Sb and Pb were higher than WHO and EPA limits while the values of Mn were within the range of WHO and EPA limits.
