Thought it was a picture from the back, guess it wasn't. Does look quite old, rusty metal, so maybe from that period, who knows (found this in a
document - "Several concrete pads and metal poles that were part of the original operation are located in the vicinity of SGZ").
Trying for the life of me to remember where exactly it was, can't remember, but messed around with pan and zoom in GE, trying to fit the location to
the mountains in the background, think it is here, about 1000ft from ground zero:
EDITED TO ADD: re the Petroleum Impacted Soil
Been reading some documents about the cleanup of this site, in which they refer to a "Burn Area", and "total petroleum hydrocarbons in the
diesel/motor oil range" - I had this vision of them dousing some noxious or even radioactive stuff in their "Burn Area" with diesel fuel, and lighting
Also - the "pipe"/casing that the device was lowered 3275+ ft. down into, shown in the pictures, with the plaque. Apparently the top of that was at
ground level before the blast - that is how much that entire area dropped!
