There are different amounts of natural radionuclides in the natural structures of environmental samples such as stone, soil and rock. Determining the natural radioactivity levels of these environmental samples is important for the protection of the environment and human health. In this study, the activity concentrations of Uranium-238, Thorium-232 and potassium-40 natural radionuclides were measured in soil samples mixed with oil that emerged as waste in the Basra oil field. These measurements were made using NaI (Tl) detector gamma ray spectrometry in Süleyman Demirel University Physics Department. Using the measured activity concentrations, the levels of radiological hazards to which especially workers working in these areas will be exposed were determined. All results obtained were compared with the recommended limit values.
