In this study accumulation, content and multivariate relationship of Ag, Al, Ba, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, K, Mg, Mn, Na, Ni, Pb, P, Rb, Sr and Zn in Cantharellus cibarius and topsoil collected from four places of Central and Northeastern Poland were investigated. Mercury was determined using cold vapor atomic absorption spectroscopy and other elements by inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectroscopy. Principal Component Analysis (PCA) was used to examine the interdependences between 20 elements sequestered in fruit bodies by C. cibarius and in the soil substratum. Fruit bodies of Common Chanterelle from all places investigated can be considered as relatively abundant in essential elements such as: K, P, Mg, Na, Ca, Fe, Zn, Cu, Mn and Co. This mushroom effectively accumulates Rb, K, P, Cu, Cd, Ag, Na and Zn from the soil substratum, while Al, Ba, Cr, Fe and Pb are excluded.
