Breaking News: Whistle-blower talks, container vessel is melting like honeycomb

A whistle-blower of Tepco leaked the actual situation of Fukushima plant.

He left his comments on a Japanese forum. Here are the messages.

二号機でのボーリング調査が佳境へと近づいています。正直結果からすれば政府・東電発表のステップ2終了は 肯けません。 水平ボーリングは軟材質の場合はこんな簡単な機器でも行けるようですが、建屋のコンクリはそうは行きません。 これは外国製の斜めボーリング機。ほとんど同じもの使って格納容器下まで行きます。

<Translatio>

Boring survey around reactor 2 is coming to the climax. As a result, the announcement of the government and Tepco has to be denied. If it’s soft material, they can do horizontal boring with such a weak equipment (like the top picture ) but when it comes to the concrete of the reactor building it’s impossible. They need to do boring with a foreign heavy equipment at an angle. They do boring to reach to under the container vessel. (like the bottom 2 pictures)

不必要な所はこの緑のロータリーダイヤモンドビットでガリガリ進めます。この時の埃は致死量です。 いよいよサンプルが必要になるとホールソー式ビットへ切り替えます。だけどダイヤモンド刃は 高温に弱いため500度位から先はスタンダードのタングステンカーバイト刃へ変更して掘削します。 今はGP掘削なので貼り画の様に綺麗に抜けます。

<Translation>

When they do boring where they don’t need to take a sample they drill roughly with this green rotary diamond bit but the dust is lethal because it’s too radioactive. When they need to take a sample, they change the diamond bit to hole saw type of bit. However, diamond is weak for the heat so when it’s hotter than 500℃ they use the standard type of the tungsten carbide instead.    The bottom 3 pictures are the samples taken.

採取したコンクリスラグの一部を頂戴してお持ち帰りの専用鉛容器(千○田テクノル)に入れ放射線妓研へと持って帰ります。

採取したコンクリスラグは冷却のためにぶっかけたか、汽水域のための海水中のナトリウムとコンクリ中の炭酸カルシウムと
化学反応して重ウラン酸ナトリウムとなったためか、イエローケーキに近いまっ黄色。
中心の金属は多分、未反応のままの金属ウランペレットかも。まだ成分分析前なので正確には言えませんが。

500X100CPMを軽々と振り切る黄色いコンクリのスラグが格納容器の建屋床下からモロモロと出てきます。これって格納容器が
少なくともハニカム状に溶融してますよね? そうでなければここから何で金属ウランが出るの?

<Translate>

Taking a part of the concrete slag sample. Put it into the lead case (Chiyoda technol) and take it to a lab.

I don’t know if it’s because they gave sea water to cool down or because it’s brackish area, if natrium (sodium salt) of sea water made a chemical reaction with calcium carbonate in the concrete to become diuranate natrium (sodium diuranate) or not, it looks yellow as yellow cake.

Probably the iron part of the core is uranium pellet unreacted – not sure yet because it’s still before the analysis.

It’s beyond the max reading of 500X100 CPM. These yellow concrete slags come out from under the building one after one. It means that the container vessel is melting like honeycomb at least – doesn’t it? Otherwise why would metal uranium comes out of there ?

思い切って放射線防護服を着て遮蔽容器から取り出して撮影。
採取時点は瓦礫温度が400度を超えてましたが、今は冷めて100度位。
大きな金属結晶(これ、物凄い放射線です。)と周りのイエローケーキ状
のコンクリ酸化物がご覧頂けますか。これ格納容器の外にあるんですよ。
時間500ミリシーベルト以上で、手持ちの測定器は測定限界を超えてました。
コワイので2~3枚撮影して、そそくさと終いました。

<Translation>

made up my mind to take out the slags from the shelter to take pictures of them.

wore protective clothing. When it’s taken out, it was over 400 ℃ but now it’s cooled down to 100 ℃.

Can you see this big metal crystal (extremely radioactive) and the oxidized concrete looking like yellow cake? Can you believe it is out of the container vessel. It’s over 500 mSv/h, my geiger counter went over the limit.

was scared so put it back to the shelter soon as I took a couple of the pictures.

<End>

    To report this information and to take these pics of highly radioactive material, this whistle blower risked not just his career but also his life and health.

    We are all indebted to this very courageous man.

    • CaptD says:

      I agree 100%…

      It is far too easy to demand ever more data and or images from the safety of your computer!

      Why is TEPCO, not providing everything they are discovering?

      Hero status to all those that risk everything to share what is really happening in Fukushima, Japan!

  2. Nancy says:

    The source link doesn’t seem to be going to the right place?

  3. David Moore says:

    hmmm….
    would need to hear a real count instead of just maxed out to get a good idea. i can max out 5000×10 cpm in tokyo in many places with a large scintillation probe. certainly the CsI in this handheld unit is less sensitive but with concrete from a meltdown nuke plant finding very radioactive substances is no surprise.
    if he is right about what this stuff is, handling it so much is likely to kill him. it is not worth his life to show the world what many already think and others will never admit if it is so…
    fact is that it won’t change anything from here on out and i sincerely hope the guys putting themselves in harm’s way for the sake of the people living here will keep as great a distance as is humanly possible in this situation so as not to die from internal exposure to alpha emitters. If indeed the corium has corrupted the concrete around the containment to this degree, some 55-70 year old executives who have never been exposed to radiation levels like these workers are seeing every day will make a decision at some point to do something about it. when Noda said it was over, that did a lot to the population here. we are stuck with it the way it is and the execs at Tepco and the staffers sending in the human bots will do as little as is possible to arrange for the final resting place of the core material. the guys on the front line are just that and bringing out this material for a photo op (though under the morally conscious stance of the good samaritan) will likely do little to help anyone and do much to hurt the one man.
    personally i hope he is wrong so that he doesn’t go out with lung cancer or something…

      Being selfless used to be considered a good thing. This person is a hero.

    • nc10t says:

      Another “anomaly” in these pictures is there is not even a tiny bit of noise (sparkling) in the picture caused by the gamma attacking the CCD imager in this camera. If it were a film camera, the radiation would have fogged the picture. This picture is way too clean to have been taken in the presence of intense radiation. It should be heavily dotted with gamma noise passing through the digital camera’s imager.

      10 Sv/hr scrambles CCD camera where my Android camera app was made.
      The app works very well, by the way.

  4. Nancy says:

    Is there a source for the pictures? At least where they were posted online? They don’t seem to be with the blog post?

    • Mochizuki says:

      Because I was stupid ,I carelessly downloaded the pictures. lol

      • Brent Cole says:

        It is OK that you uploaded the files. You saw the physical evidence, took the pictures, and verified that the pictures were of what you saw; and were the pictures that you took. Yes?
        If yes: Then you may make an affidavit stating the circumstances and particulars, and attach a copy of the photos to it as an appendix. This will authenticate your evidence, and will make it acceptable as evidence in any court. Please do so and post right here.
        Take some potassium iodide and flax seed oil. Thanks for everything you have done.

        • Himpty Dimp says:

          I hear sodium bicarbonate & sucking blue green alge off of rocks works too lol. For that much radiation buddy, flax will save you about as much as pissing upside down in the wind. (Speaking of which, they also say drinking your first morning piss is quite invigorating. Might try it, it could help you to think before you post.

  5. unspokenhermit says:

    We knew there was the ability to honeycomb the concrete. The dense metal rebar all over inside it. Dean said it would melt first leaving tons of holes in the concrete.

    I recently came across these atmpospheric simulations, produced an American independent organization, that indicate TEPCO vastly under-reported radionuclide emissions from the Fukushima Plant.

    http://www.datapoke.org/blog/8/study-modeling-fukushima-npp-radioactive-contamination-dispersion-utilizing-chino-m-et-al-source-terms/

    http://www.datapoke.org/partmom/a=40

    I’ve suspected for some time that the publicly released emissions data had been manipulated – If the models are correct I suppose this re enforces my hunch. Is there anyone here that can help us explain the implications of this model?

    • Nancy says:

      I don’t care if someone repeats something I said but cutting and pasting it word for word from somewhere else is just creepy.

  6. If this was core nuclear material the person would not be able to withstand being in the same room with it, he would drop dead. He would be exposed to dozens if not hundreds of Sieverts of radiation.

    When scientists found the core under Chernobyl, the radiation from the material was 10s of thousands of Roentgens per hour.

  8. Dori says:

    Wow. I thank this man for his service to the future of humanity.

    Lest we forget…

    • Himpty Dimp says:

      Less we forget what??? The facts presented in the free online video called “Loose Chanve” or “Camp FEMA” or “Police STATE IV”?

  9. Nancy says:

    So were the images with the original post at 2ch.net? It is a bit confusing as there are no images with the copies of the post at shadow-city.blozine.jp.

    These kinds of discoveries are frustrating. Nobody wants to out a whistleblower, it is just too dangerous to do so. On the other hand there isn’t anything verifying the image came from the plant. I hope this person keeps leaking information or someone at the plant can snap an image of the drilling rig.

    If this is from under unit 2 it is pretty damning on TEPCO’s cold shutdown nonsense.

  10. Atomfritz says:

    The workers on the photos don’t wear the obligatory protection suits. If the photos are from Fuku-I, then this are old photos.

    Corium has a surface radiation in the magnitude of several hundred sieverts.

    The whistleblower’s name must be R2D2, as I don’t see vomiting traces in the pics.

  11. freeaks says:

    if some of the photos displayed in this article aren’t part of the news, and are just here to “illustrate” the info, maybe you should put a note saying so.
    on some other sites i read i’ve seen ppl think this post maybe a fake just because the photos show something unrelated..

    as always, thanks a lot for all your efforts.

    I believe that this is the most definitive graphic evidence so far of the actual China Syndrome (in reactor 2, is it?). Would be very interesting what the results of the analysis would be!!! The more appropriate question would be, what does Tepco/Japanese govt intend to do with this data? Formulate more hocus-pokus scenarios or start the evacuation already? Maxed out readings are very scary indeed….

    Thanks a million to this whistle blower, brave enough to risk his life to take photos for the world to know!!! And Thanks Iori for posting…. you are indeed performing a very humanitarian and brave act by keeping us all informed!!!

  14. Hi Mochizuki-san, your post is quoted in the comments section of this blog page:

    Its G.E.’s fault, they were warned in the mid 1970′s about their poor design and redundacy in the cooling mechanism of the BWR type Nuclear Design, that was used on this Nuclear Plant and many others like it, scattered all over this World and Country. G.E. Nuclear had 3 Engineers had resigned stressing flaws and non redundancies in this BWR Nuclear plant, that any 1 breech in Cooling Mechanisms would cause meltdown and worse. And it was worse. G.E. was warned.

    • Himpty Dimp says:

      Which do you think killed more people, this accident or G.E.’s Chaingun? Do you really think G.E. could really G.A.F.? Killing people is where they make their money, they can really G.A.S. if people die BECAUSE they are making money.

  20. [...] There is also this strange find that can’t be completely confirmed. A post online claims to be a worker at Fukushima Daiichi. He says that they are drilling underneath unit 2 right now looking for information on what is going on at unit 2. Please note that the images in the link showing a drilling rig are to explain what a rig looks like, they are not claimed to be photos from Daiichi, this confused some people. The images of the claimed specimen were said to be highly radioactive and were shot while the worker was wearing protective gear but he does not elaborate what type of gear he was wearing. The original posts were found on two message boards. The images were grabbed by Iori at Fukushima Diary. He said he grabbed them but forgot to save the link where he found them.

  23. Steve C. says:

    Fake or not, I can’t tell, becuase I know sod all about corium. (I know… some troll will say I know nothing at all) but when we saw the shockwave on that first blast going supersonic, indicating a detonation, (not a deflagration which one gets with a gas explosion) it ws a fair guess that the reactor was instantly abd catastrophically ruined. From that point on it was obvious that the news people were lying. Still here in teh west, there is no real acknowledgement of the severity of fukushima, in the mainstream media, and hence no plans to move away from nuclear technology. If only Joe public understood the issues! 48 hours to safely scram a reactor, it’s like having 48 seconds of brake delay in your car…

  24. misitu says:

    i suspect that these pictures do not represent anything useful from fukushima dai-ichi, nor anything current.

    Photos 2 and 3 are site construction, not forensics: dai-ichi is built on an excavated platform a few metres above sea level with the base of the turbine hall actually a few metres BELOW sea level.

    Photo 2 is not therefore an investigation of the ground below any of the reactors at dai-ichi.

    Photo 3 implies a very deep and extensive excavation which I find unrealistic given that all the work at dai-ichi so far has been rubble removal. The picture is a MAJOR piece of excavation. Were it anywhere near the dai-ichi reactor basements the level of radiation would be lethal. But, again, the height and appearance of the wall just look plain wrong.

    Photo 6 with the rock samples is I think misleading. I think it’s natural rock: greywacke, breccia, volcanic tuff, for example. I do NOT think it’s concrete. You would NOT build with aggregate as shattered and lineated as this. Given knowledge of the underlying formations at dai-ichi, this COULD be from one of the tuff lenses way down below sea level. It is incredible to think that the power plant is built on this material (which we know it isn’t: it’s built on a compacted layer of fill over the locally hundreds of feet thick mudstone and siltstone formations).

    The yellowish rock is probably uranium oxide on granitic material from a vein and cannot come from the geology underneath dai-ichi.

    Sorry, Mochizuki, but I think whoever supplied these photos is trying to mislead. The content does not tell a coherent story, and the pictures within my ambit do not reflect “drilling into the basement of the building to locate the corium”.

    • Mochizuki says:

      The first 3 pictures are references and the concrete is from the reactor building. Please read the article.

      • Jason says:

        Mochizuki,

        This is the first and only mention Ive heard of mentioning boring operations. Fukushima-diary is not my favorite source for a multitude of reasons. I prefer Ex-Skf.

        You posted shows reference pictures of boring equipment, not it actually deployed in Fukushima. Personally, I haven’t seen the equipment required to bore through concrete around reactors on the web cams or from pdf release from Tepco.

        He also states the dust from the boring is too radioactive. Im sure it is, but its commonly known tungsten carbide dust is a carcinogen also. Notice, he said they switch from diamond to carbide tungsten due to temperatures.

        This information is wrong and here’s why:

        Wiki-”PCD has good fracture toughness and ‘good thermal stability’, and is used in making geological drill bits.”

        PCD are formed at 3500 degrees C, surely they can handle 500 C.

        “Diamond tools are suitable to process the following materials: Carbide alloy, Hard or abrasive non-metallic materials, for example, stone, concrete, asphalt…”

        So Diamond tools produce carbide tools.

        Also, mentioning a section of radioactive concrete, which was supposedly bored from underneath an unspecified Reactor, referring to it as a “concrete slag sample.” Doesn’t appear to come from any boring machine, as it doesn’t resemble the previous samples shown above it.

        “These yellow concrete slags come out from under the building one after one.”
        In the next translation the story changes to
        “Can you believe it is out of the container vessel.”
        The primary containment is certainly not under the building.

        Wherever its from it was radioactive.

        Finally this so called,”report” is taken from a online forum and translated. Which somehow you lost the link. These reasons call the validity of this article into question, casting a large doubt on it.

        I can go on but, My personal take on the article is its main idea was lost in translation or miscommunicated. The idea rather, my idea is this:

        Was that radioactive concrete pictured, actually from the bore? I suspect not at all. Just a piece that was thrown after the explosions.

        Yes they bored a hole, no it wasnt under any reactor, I know when and why, they bored right through the primary containment, for the endoscopy.

        December ex-worker leaked drilling. Then confirmed later, they are drilling a hole in Reactor 2. Turns out, it was 1/3/12 or following week/s, Sea side, date of your article, aboutforum response. Two weeks to the day, 1/17/12, NHK announces”hole drilled”, I saw on enenews, they are going in. 1/19/12, they are in, “wheres the water?!

        • Mochizuki says:

          The drilling is about the basement concrete of the reactor.
          The endoscope operation is about the reactor. Read the article and don’t waste my time.
