Abstract Our work is intended as a contribution to the analysis of the effect of barium factory discharges in the region of Ain Mimoun in the province of Khenchela, the latter has a semi-arid climate, the sampling of the groundwater was carried out on quaternary and cretaceous formations for the purpose of physicochemical analysis. The hydrochemical study revealed that the concentrations of barium and sulphate are high, particularly in the samples taken near the production unit. This means that the discharge of this barite unit has a pollution impact on the groundwater of our study area.
