Cameroon has a great potential in mineral resources.  In Douala, the economic capital, there are many industrial activities which constitute sources of diverse pollution, among these aluminum pollution, for its ubiquity and its numerous uses.  The city of Douala, main town of the littoral region of Cameroon is surrounded by four rivers: the Sanaga rivers supplies the towns of Edeaand Douala with energy, and a great core industry of bauxite processing in aluminum Alucam; the Wouri river with its numerous industrial and harbour activities, Dibamba and Moungo rivers where fishing and sand-digging are the main activities.  The study of the assessment of aluminum contents from these four rivers was made and it was found that the concentration of aluminum was between 0.1 and 0.2 mg/L. It was also shown that the presence of aluminum in these rivers is due to the deterioration of rocks and soils; the streaming of waters, human activities, industrial waste among others. These factors could be dangerous and hinder marine life.
