Summary: This literature study summarizes a few reports that has been written on the subject of the natural nuclear fission reactor at Oklo, Gabon, Africa. The report concludes that the actinites formed from nuclear fission, such as plutonium, have remained completely retained in the rock for well over a billion years, despite being entirely unprotected from the elements and flushed through by water. Other more volatile elements, such as Caesium and Strontium have migrated out.
