The Yuryuzan national-level nuclear weapons storage facility is near the Zlatoust-36/Yuryuzan nuclear weapons production plant. Corona Mission 1115-2 of 20 September 1971 indicates there are two storage areas which branch off a central housing or maintenance area. It appears to be one complex and seems to have roughly the same capacity of the two storages near Nizhnyaya Tura.
