07-Jun-2003 -- On June 7 we visited three points in the Chelyabinsk oblast and this is one of them.

This matches our record which was set on the 2nd of June, three points for one day. The weather was cloudy all day and despite of the successful visits of the points our mood was not lifted. The monotonous landscape has not left interesting memoirs.

On this day we also have visited 55°N-60°E and 55°N-61°E.

The hunt goes on!

Coordinator's Note: This visit marked as incomplete after the second visit, so there is no clear photo of confluence place.

  Notes
Attention: In September 1957 the area around the Confluence received a radioactive contamination from the Kyshtym disaster in a Plutonium production site about 35 km to the southwest. A 2014 publication mentions a radioactive surface contamination near the Confluence, mainly from Strontium-90 and Caesium-137, of 4 kBq/m², the half-life of Sr-90 being 29 years, the half-life of Cs-137 being 30 years. However, only a short distance southeast of the Confluence lies an area with significantly higher radiation. Thus the time of stay in this area should be kept as short as possible and appropriate measures should be taken by the visitors to protect themselves against any radioactive contamination.
