You're not missing anything, but I wanted a ballpark figure. You can get a better ballpark figure by taking account of the composition of corium, but when you're looking at corium levels in fractions of microgram per square meter, I'm not sure that's the most productive use of your time.

At least 97% of the corium would be Uranium, except in the case of MOX fuel which can be 7% Plutonium.
