The primary goal of the sacy project (Search for Associations Containing Young Stars) was to identify possible associations of stars younger than the Pleiades association among optical counterparts of ROSAT X-ray-bright sources. The study of the chemical abundance in stars located in regions of stellar formation is extremely important to understand stellar nucleo-synthesis, the physical mechanisms controlling mixing in stellar interiors, and chemical enrichment in the Galaxy. The present work highights the first results of a chemical-abundance study of evolved stars identified in the sacy survey. For this, we performed a detailed spectroscopic analysis for the determination of atmospheric parameters and Li abundance for a sample of giant and subgiant stars. The observations were carried out with high resolution using the FEROS (R = 48 000) échelle spectrograph. We measured the stellar parameters (Teff, log g, vmic, [Fe/H]) from LTE analysis in the complete range of 420-1100 nm. Li abundance was derived from the region around the lithium line at 6707.78 Å for the entire sample of stars.
