This research was conducted at Tapunggaya in Molawe subdistrict in North Konawe Regency in South East Sulawesi, near activity of mining Laterite Nickel. This research aims to know the impact of the activity of mining nickel laterite on the quality of groundwater. The methods used to analyze concentrations of Cr6+, and Cd was direct observation and AAS which was a method of index pollution in the determination of the quality of groundwater. The activity of nickel mining did not show the significant impact to surrounded groundwater. There was nickel in the area of research through the standard of groundwater quality because the bedrock is ultramafic rocks. It was peridotite and garnierite filling veins among body rocks. According to the estimations of index pollution, the quality of groundwater was low pollution. Quality of groundwater was divided into three contaminant levels. Quality of groundwater includes two contaminant levels consisting of filling quality standard, and low contamination. The filled standard quality groundwater was at 2nd and 3rd stations. The low contaminations were at 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th stations.
