On the basis of the call from the Ramford Real-estate Reclamation and Development Corporation (RRRDC), and the experience with “Ramavalley Estates” (case one) the company decided to send Dr. Halpern from the Ramford University Physics Department and members of the Company’s field team to visit Pitchblende Estate with Geiger counters and other instruments to measure radioactivity.

When the team entered the manor house the Geiger counter clicked at a much higher rate than expected (6-8 times the background). The team descended to the manor’s extensive wine cellar the counter went “off scale”; values were also very elevated in the kitchen and pastry preparation area (one floor below ground).
