gamma-Ray spectrometric analysis was performed on hot water spring mud samples, collected from Haymana-Ankara (Turkey) Spa, a well known health resort in the middle of Anatolia. The contents of natural and artificial radionuclides (Ra-226, U-235, U-238, Th-228, Th-232, K-40 and Cs-137) were determined. The results were compared with the radioactivity values of different Spas. gamma-Isotopic analysis indicated that the maximum level concentration of the thermal mud samples for Ra-226, U-235, U-238, Th-228, Th-232, K-40 and Cs-137 were (Bq/kg) 162, 7.4, 156, 75, 127, 66 and 1.6, respectively.
