Iron and Manganese contents and parameters including pH, conductivity, and organic matter contents were determined in the sediments of the Okpara dam in Northern Benin. Fifteen samples were collected during a one-month period and analysed in laboratory using the method of sequential extraction of Tessier. The analyses indicated that sediments contained high concentrations in reducible fraction of Iron and relatively high contents of exchangeable fraction, acidhydrolysable fraction and residual fraction of Manganese. The findings of this study confirmed the hypotheses that the meal contents of the sediments were relatively high and varied according to the geochemical phases.
