|Summary:||The present work of investigation type I: "Determination of the concentration of nitrites and nitrates in undergrounds waters impacted by artisanal mining in Cerro El Toro, Shiracmaca-Huamachuco, La Libertad 2010”, is a descriptive study, whose general objective is to determine the concentration of nitrites and nitrates in undergroundswaters impacted by artisanal mining in Cerro El Toro, Shiracmaca-Huamachuco, La Libertad 2010. The population of study was constituted by undergrounds waters of five bordering points to the Cerro El Toro-Shiracmaca that they were: Shiracmaca Bridge, River Chamiz Bass, drinkable of Water, irrigation Water and Water tunnel. The collected data were processed in the Microsoft Office Excel 2010, from which we obtained a calibration curve. Taking the results of the quantitative determination of nitrates and nitrites of undergrounds waters impacted by artisanal mining was performed statistical tests of standard deviation, average, and the test statistic. The significance level was used to assess differences between the values found in the samples was of p < 0,05. The results of the quantitative determination of the concentrations of nitrites in undergrounds waters impacted by artisanal mining in the five borderingspoints to the Cerro El Toro, Shiracmaca-Huamachuco, were obtained in concentrations Chamiz River Water and Irrigation Water Under are elevated with for the range established by the OMS (0.5 mg /L); also found close to the limit concentrations as was the water of Shiracmaca Bridge and Water Tunnel. With regard to the quantitative determination of the concentrations of nitrates in undergrounds waters impacted by artisanal mining in five borderingspoints the Cerro El Toro, Shiracmaca-Huamachuco, it was found that concentrations of water obtained under Chamiz River, Water and Irrigation andWater Tunnel were above the range established by OMS (50 mg /L), the presence of these ions at high concentrations bring a source of environmental contamination and latent health too|
