Well, Chernobyl’s solid corium (not molten) has been heating up, which is what coriums do for 250,000 years. All out criticality? I’m not sure if that will occur but the corium will get hotter and hotter and may recoalesce into a geometry and mass which could support criticality with production of dust that would include more and more plutonium and other radionuclides with each criticality cycle. In the meantime, the dust is intensely toxic, and the spalling is increasing.
