The observation of the Mössbauer resonance of the 6.2 keV gamma rays of tantalum 181 in tantalum metal over the temperature range of 300 to 2400 K is reported here. This is the highest temperature range for any Mössbauer study up to now. Slight deviation of the linear dependence of the isomer shift is noted at higher temperatures. The increase and following decrease of the line-width with temperature due to absorption, diffusion and degassing of residual gases (oxygen and nitrogen) is considered.
