In 2005-2006, surface soil samples (0-15 cm) were collected from different
regions of Republic of Srpska (Banjaluka, Kupres, Glamoc, Ozren, Grahovo,
Manjaca, Samac, Novo Selo, Tursinovac, Skaric), in order to evaluate their
radioactivity. During the War lasted from 1992 to 1996, it is known that these
locations were imposed by NATO forces. Due to this reason the samples were taken
from these locations in order the presence of depleted uranium to be checked in
soil.  Concentrations of radionuclides in soil samples were determined by gama
spectrometry (HPGe detector, relative efficiency 23%). Results showed the
presence of natural radionuclides 226Ra, 232Th, 40K, 235U, 238U as well as the
produced radionuclide 137Cs (from the Chernobyl accident).

This site is dedicated to the people of the karst region and the rocky people who through centuries managed to survive and survive in this region, preserve their faith, their customs and traditions, but in the distant world of many who suffer for their home village, Malovan often wanted to return, to freely breathe the charms of Malovan beautiful mountains and the smell of its floral field, the strength of the bush from Malovan, to see the herds countless, the horses of the crows unharnessed with the straight Kupres field playful, the bark dots where the green grass is hair, and it remains only to us we often go there now, but now there is silence everywhere.
We are left alone, our village, our native lump, and we are wondering about the outbreaks of the Malovan Sun and gave it the same morning as it used to be. We will remember forever our village Malovan, the Milač River clear and cold, and the Malovan portal that feeds and keeps our Malovan memorial.
