A source from Japan with a background in nuclear engineering writes:
As you know, the test sample [See: Official: Plutonium detected in black substance from Minamisoma (PHOTOS)] was not a real black-material. We have already found much stronger black-material (see picture) in Haramachi-area, its radiation is 20-times higher than the sample used for the test. Also, over 520 micro-SV substance has been found.
Measurement values submitted to the committee of Minamisoma city council were made lower in an arbitrary manner, and the test result was covered-up 4-weeks (report of the test had already been made on March 29th/30th.)
Mr. Ooyama said, in his blog, that some agents from Fukushima pref. gov. and Prof. Kodama involved this information manipulation.

- UPDATE: Original mystery black substance was never tested -- Much more radioactive than official's black dust -- Detector shows 95,880 cpm -- Up to 60,000 cpm in beta -- New alpha info
