This study was to determine the concentrations of essential metals such as namely Copper, Cobalt, Manganese, Iron and Zinc) and heavy metals such as Cadmium and Lead performed by atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS) in two sample of some animal meats of Mutton (sheep) and Beef (cow), collected from the district popularly in Merowe-city, north Sudan. The essential metals estimation in the investigated samples indicated the following range of concentration (0.19 -0.28mg/kg) for Cobalt, (0.36-0.31mg/kg) for Copper, (3.16-5.44mg/kg) for Iron, (0.12-0.15mg/kg) for Manganese, and (5.30 -7.6mg/kg) for Zinc respectively. These concentrations of essential metals are in the range of human necessities. The concentration of toxic metals (Cadmium and lead) in two samples is not mean detected. The results also showed that were significant differences of some essential elements concentrations (Mg/kg) in two samples. Generally meat of Beef was found to have to highest significant levels of metals and the meat of Mutton lowest levels. The concentration of Iron and Zinc concentration in all samples were within the tolerance limits.
