This document contains miscellaneous information concerning Thorex short-cooled processing. Included are a table and figures with (a) Fission product and Pa activities in thorium irradiated to the approximate level of that handled in the Thorex short-cooled runs (August-November 1957); (b) hydrogen formation rates in the Pa-decay storage tanks due to radiolytic decomposition of water; (c) inventories of Pa-233 at ORNL in thorium metal and in the Pa-decay storage tanks; and (d) releases of Kr-85 and Xe-133 from Thorex during August and September 1957.
