In thepresent work, elements concentration in fingernails samples of volunteers ofdifferent ages males, females were determined using atomic absorptionspectroscopy AAS Perkin-Elmer, spectrophotometer. Fingernails samples of differentgroups were analyzed to determine the trace elements Ca, Mg, Mn, Fe, Ni, Cu,Co, Zn and Pb. Standards materials were prepared for concentration assessmentthat adjacent to samples from two cities in different location in eastern provinceof Sudan for elements concentrations finding. In addition, samples of handsfingernails and toenails were analyzed for comparison and method validation.Consequently, the significant levels of elements concentration in nails samplesof Jabiat residents compared to Port Sudan resident’s area due to soildispersion are supporting the possibility of external contamination. The dataof component matrix and rotated component matrix of varimax normalization usingprincipal component analysis revealed important predictors of nails elementsMg, Mn, Fe, Cu and Zn concentrations in soil of both areas under study. However, the Pb, Ni, Ca, and Co are possibleto be indication of different sources associated with environmentalcontamination. The significant correlation and principal component analysis ofthe elements of nails concentrations in the two categories supported theprobability of different expose environmental contamination.
