The memo describes the hot run which began on October 9, 1944 when 36 slugs were brought to 706-C from the canal in Building 105. Readings of 150 mr/hour were obtained during the transfer. Twenty-four slugs each day were brought over from Building 105 until October 13, 1944. Victoreen surveys of Cell 3 indicated a radiation level of 9 r/hour, and a filter removed from Cell 4 on October 11 showed a reading of 10 r/hour at a distance of 3 feet. An area was posted where fumes from an off-gas pipe of the storage tank gave a reading of 200 mr/hour at contact. A maximum of 300 mr/hour at 5 inches was observed during the sampling throughout the entire run. Film rings worn when danger of over exposure was expected gave a total reading of 230 to 630 mr over a three-day period.
