Press Release (Sep 03,2011)
Detection of radioactive materials in the soil in Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (31st release)
 
As part of monitoring activity of the surrounding environment, we conducted 
an analysis of plutonium contained in the soil collected on March 21 and 22 
at the 5 spots in Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. As a result, 
plutonium 238, 239 and 240 were detected.
                                                    (Previously announced)

As a result of plutonium and strontium analysis in the soil from the 
samples at the 3 periodic sampling spots collected on August 15, plutonium 
238, 239, and 240 and strontium 89 and 90 were detected as shown in the 
attachment 1 and 2.

In addition, as a result of nuclide analysis of the gamma ray contained in 
the soil, radioactive materials were detected as shown in the attachment 3.

Today, we informed the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency and the 
government of Fukushima Prefecture of the results.

We will continue conducting the similar analysis.
