Here we discuss a method for a study of the heavy nuclei cosmic ray composition. The method is based on a charge separation with the PAMELA calorimeter. The work is in progress now. The ability is presented to carry out measurements up to Fe and Ni. As a result we expect to get important data about the abundance of the chemical elements in the cosmic rays.
