The objective of this work is to study the mineral composition of bottom sediments of eight small lakes located on the right bank of the Ob River (Western Siberia) in the Surgut region of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug - Yugra. The studies were carried out using wave dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDFR) spectroscopy. The content of organic substances, ash, and oxides in the ash in the samples was determined. Based on these data, the studied bottom sediments were classified. The bottom sediments of Lake S-1 are siltstone sands, lakes Vach Lor and S-189 - weakly sapropelic siltstone sands, lakes S-5, S-6, S-3, S-89, and S-294 - typical sapropels. The article presents the content of the main elements in the ash of the studied samples.
