Edit: Update below this post, the can has been found.

So a can of radioactive material has gone missing in China, the only thing i could imagine the material to be used for is a dirty bomb, other than that i don't know.

I couldn't find any other sources for this.

SOURCE RSOE


A massive search operation has been launched in China to find a can containing radioactive isotopes which went missing during transportation in the country's northeastern Jilin province earlier this week.

The can, about 20 cm in height, went missing on Monday when a team of workers from a drilling company of the Daqing Oilfield were working in Songyuan City of Jilin, company sources of Daqing Oilfield in Heilongjiang Province were quoted as saying by the state-run Xinhua news agency.

The can contained radioactive indium-113m

The link was from 2014, so i have removed it.

So the can is still missing.

Sorry for the confusion.

Indium 113 appears to be only mildly radioactive so using it for a dirty bomb would not be that effective.

Effective enough though, eh?

Point of dirty bombs though is less about killing and more about causing caos.

Let that off in a down town area and you got a multi million dollar cleaining bill and people unable to work or live there for a few weeks will they clean the mess up.

Ok, i was thinking that but my knowledge is limited when comes to radioactive materials.

It would appear not to be considering the amount that was taken.

Indium 113 is not radioactive enough to cause a fall out incident.

Is it radioactive enough to poison someone and cause their death?

If not, then let's move on.

Police in Songyuan have offered a cash reward of 30,000 yuan (USD 4,498) for clues leading to its retrieval.


Not even 5,000 bucks?

It's almost like they don't really want to find it. Hard to believe a guy is risking to get cought just for one can. Probably not the first one to disappear. Look for the guy with the bigger lunch box. The size of the can rules out a cavity search.

Nope, Indium 113 is a stable isotope.

what would the long term effect be,say a slow exposure like an x ray a day at the dentist?

Oh G0d Please let it be GODZILLA.

Guess it doesn't matter now as Wang Jianlin purchased Godzilla for 5 Birron dorrar.

Nothing, it is a stable isotope.

Small potatoes to you, but it is more than the yearly gross of of the average Chinese monthly minimum wage

Minimum Wages in China increased to 2020 CNY/Month in 2015 from 1820 CNY/Month in 2014.
and just shy of half the average Chinese yearly wage

Wages in China increased to 62029 CNY/Year in 2015 from 57361 CNY/Year in 2014.
