This study presents new data on the baseline concentrations of Thorium over the Dereköy-Yazır (Ağlasun-Burdur) volcanic area. Portable gamma-ray spectrometer was used for natural thorium mapping. In situ measurements were made in the field, in the area of 7.5 km² at 165 points. Variations in the Th concentration in the surficial environment of the Dereköy-Yazır region appear to be related to bedrock lithology. The measured thorium concentration varies between 0.68-36 ppm, in the studied area. The highest concentration values were obtained from volcanic rocks. The outcropping volcanic rocks in the region are Pliocene alkaline basalts.
