There are many "sciences: lost to us, for thousands of forms of mathematics we base our entire society upon one... Euclidean Geometry The man who built Coral Castle in Florida shows us something.... there is a system of balance points, triangulation and leverage that allows one to move giant stones that modern science can't quite put it's finger around.
What could a man with his life devoted to Uranium a background in Chinese Alchemy/Chemistry and a building full of laborers accomplish? I don't know... I know you I or the OP couldn't recreate a couple of decades of the life of whomever was in charge/ allowed to play in that building.
I can suppose many things that DO make sense

If uranium was involved in the explosion wouldn't there be some reports of radistion sickness in the aftermath?

Fair enough, but you refuted only the historical points and my statement that it looked like a neutron bomb. You seem to know quite a lot about nukes; what do you think about the rest of the stuff presented in my third post?

Where there any grain silos, or grain storage facilities close by?
Grain silos and storage facilities are notorious for their explosivity.
I created a thread a long while back in attempting to frame the idea of looking at some ancient and prehistorical disasters that could very well be attributable to exploding grain storage.
Ancient Explosions ...

Looks like we're on the same page.
Spontaneous combustion, maybe. but a mushroom cloud?
Interesting thread op.
Grain goes Boom!
Granted, Asia is more rice oriented, but, the same goes for that as typical wheat grain.

My husband who has a degree in metalurgy and heat transfer says that heating uranium ore cannot produce an explosion. Simply heating it does NOT release its potential explosive energy, no matter how hot you get it.
