3-Апреля-2023 – К точке ехал от Тулы. Не доезжая 2 км до М-5, свернул на юг в сторону Киреевского солепромысла. Террикон шахты почти полностью срыт. Перед предприятием свернул на восток к деревне Медвенка. В деревню не заезжал, объехал по полевой дороге западной окраиной. На точку заехал на машине.

Точка расположена в Киреевском районе Тульской области практически в деревне Медвенка. В 25 метрах огороды, в 100 метрах строения, дом. Местность равнинная, с густой сетью мелких оврагов.


03-Apr-2023 – I went to hunt for this confluence from Tula. In about 2 kilometers away from M-5 Highway I turned south towards Kireyevsky saltworks. The mine’s spoil tip is is almost teared down. Then I turned east towards Medvenka village. I drove around the place taking the field road on its west outskirts. I managed to reach the confluence by car.

The confluence is located in Kireyevsky district of Tula Oblast almost in the Medvenka village. It is literally only 25 meters away from the vegetable gardens and 100 meters away from the houses. The area is flat with a wide net of small ravines.

Attention: In December 1989 the area around the Confluence had a radioactive surface contamination from Caesium-137 of 37-185 kBq/m², the half-life of Cs-137 being 30 years. 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.
