The paper considers the analytical procedure for determination of U and Th isotopes in environmental samples for those cases when coincentrations are on the background levells. The technique includes preconcentration operations with the use of ion-exchange and electrodeposition with the aim to obtain preparations for alpha-spectrometry. The preconcentration allows to use less complicated alpha-spectrometric installations.
