During the r.eriod from January until?.pril 1954, soil investigations for a construction rrjject located near !rostken (S 54/AA 95) were executed by several brigades by the State Geological-Commission. The new project had the desi,*na tion ';'ytwornia: Chemiczne (chemical production) and "as to be located in the wooded area between Dombrowsken (S 54/A 95) and Ostrokollen (s 54/A 95) on both sides of the roadwhth connects these two r.laces. It was rumored that an ammunition depot for the Polish armed forces was to be constructed there. The area which covered more than one square km was surrounded by a fence constructed by civilian corkers of state construction firms from Allenstein and .arsaw. Following a constructi n rlan -?hich had riready been available, the geologists had to make five drillings ur to a de;-th of 20 meters for each rroject.

It is consequently believed that this dump is being constructed at Sov%et request rather than for the Polish armed forces. Comment. Vague information indicated that a former Berman ammunition 25X1 ?ith a storing capacity of 20,000 tons of ammunition was located in the area of Bydgoszcz (Bromberg). The sizes mentioned in the report allow the conclusion that the dump possibly is the former German ammunition depot. 1iU... ??'_: i:iJ' __$ $ Approved For Release 2008/09/11: CIA-RDP80-0081 OA007900600012-9
