Abstract: This study was specifically aimed to determine the levels of beryllium and calcium in the soil collected near the vicinity of a beryllium processing facility (BPF) and to assess the effect of calcium addition, if any, to the soil. Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS) technique was used to estimate the total beryllium and calcium.  The beryllium and calcium contents per gram of soil samples were in the range of  0.8-3.02  and 1150-22535 µg respectively. The loading of collected samples with salts of calcium revealed analogy with beryllium. This was supported by the rejection of beryllium by calcium-loaded soils.
