Samples of a gapless HgSe semiconductor with different iron impurity concentrations are investigated. HgSe:Fe samples are examined by the electron-spin-resonance technique. Multiple resonance lines caused by unpaired spins of different origins are analyzed. The properties of electrons localized at shallow impurities are described using a hydrogen-like model. The effect of an internal field on the resonance lines is established. It is found that the conduction of HgSe is not only nonparabolic, but also nonspherical.
