Default MentalRay snow reflection

Hey guys, i need help! Im rendering a project with mental ray,

Have a look at the rectangle on the bottom left of the silo.

My problem is, why or what is it? there is no object to cast a shadow of any sort. I've moved objects, changed the ground, changed the lights...! Please im open to any suggestions...

There may be a problem with the snow's geometry like soft normals or something.
