The ultimate goal of air pollution assessment and control effort is to be mitigating the effect of pollutants on environment. The effect may be on health, physical quality of environments and various other biological systems. The severity of impact of air borne suspended particulate matter may depend upon its physic-chemical properties. The paper describes the impact of metal mine on air quality of the surrounding area. It was observed that suspended particulate matter is the main cause of pollution in residential as well as in the mining area and at few places like crushing plant and tailing dam etc. in the dust metal content liked lead, zinc, and cadmium are found to be higher side. The concentration of SPM is variable through out the area. It shows vide variation in summer and winter season in mining as well as in residential area. The mineral constituents present in the SPM also vary considerably.
