The highest readings were from the closest monitoring station. Given the history and size of Mayak, It must have come from there. This was the subject of a documentary I saw a year ago on Netflix. From my original post:

...documentary released July 2016, on the hidden city of Ozersk in Chelyabinsk Oblast. This was the secret location of the Mayak plant where weapons grade Plutonium was (is?) manufactured in Russia. It was not on any map for the longest time, and is still surrounded by fences and guards (see Wikipedia article ). The film was taken with a hidden camera and includes interviews with some of the workers. There are numerous interesting stories including covered-up accidents. It is called "City 40" and was directed by Samira Goetschel. Very interesting.

This looks to be "City 40" on youtube. Thanks Bert490 :)


ETA: I have just noticed the video does not have any subtitles and the auto-generated subtitles are terrible. :(
