This paper deals with experiments performed with natural uranium spallation target QUINTA irradiated by 4 GeV and 8 GeV deuteron beam from Nuclotron accelerator and by 660 MeV proton beam from Phasotron accelerator. Reaction rates for Na-24, Co-57, Co-58, Bi-205 and Bi-206 production in Al, Co and Pb threshold radioactivation foils were determined. The data served for calculation of the experimental neutron flux inside the QUINTA target for the Phasotron experiment. Simulations in Monte Carlo code MCNPX 2.7 were performed and compared to the experimental data. In the current state of research, the data evaluation and simulations are preliminary.
