Liquid‐quenched metallic amorphous alloys (FeCo)75(SiB) have been studied by 57Fe Mossbauer spectroscopy at room temperature. Direct insight in the short‐range order (SRO) and the bonding properties involving Fe atoms in these alloys is presented, taking apart clearly the metal and metalloid influence over such properties. A large increase of the SRO is found in the Co‐rich alloys which is also affected by variations in the relative concentration of metalloids Si and B. Such SRO changes influence the bonding of Si and B with Fe. The substitution of B for Si decreases the Fe 3d polarization in the Co‐rich alloys with large SRO.
