Problem of determination of isomer shift, all components of the electric field gradient and hyperfine magnetic field in case of mixed hyperfine interactions is presented. Orientation of hyperfine fields in the absorber Cartesian frame can be determined by few measurements with use of unpolarized radiation under different directions of wave vector with respect to the absorber. The method can be applied for absorbers with well separated absorption lines in their spectra. Explicit formulas for tensor components of hyperfine interactions derived from velocity moments formalism are presented.
