RUNJOB final results on the energy spectra of primary heavy cosmic ray components are presented. Data are from ten RUNJOB campaigns performed from 1995 through 1999. And the energy spectra of CNO, NeMgSi and Fe groups are shown here as well as the energy dependence of the secondary/primary ratio. We find our heavy component spectra are in agreement with the extrapolation from those at lower energies obtained by CRN (Chicago group), monotonically decreasing with energy, in contrast to JACEE and SOKOL data, which indicated a gradual increase with energy, particularly for the CNO group at ̃ 5 TeV/nucleon. As for the secondary to primary ratio we have observed in TeV/nucleon energy region, it is difficult to determine the energy dependence of their average path lengths by the RUNJOB data only, because the large uncertainty of atmospheric corrections due to the poor statistics exists.
