EJERE, AII; ELOHOR, OR & OSAGIE, UO
Investigation of ambient radiation level of Iuleha clan in Owan – West Local Government Area, Edo
State has been carried out using the radiation meter Digilert 50, Nuclear Radiation Monitor. The background natural
radiation level Count per hour (Cph) of eighteen sites of the total expanse of the clan were measured. The Cph values
ranged from 848μSv/hr (Aoma market) to 1308.00μSv/hr (Okagboro). It was discovered that sites with high Cph were
close to granite deposit or had granite subsurface foundation.
