from Terraplus

Through recording the magnetic susceptibility & conductivity of exposed bedrock it is possible to construct a comprehensive infield assessment of the changes to geochemical and mineralogical composition along outcrops, thus ensuring complex lenses, enclaves and other bodies are identified and mapped correctly. The Terraplus KT-10 magnetic susceptibility & conductivity meters are tailored towards characterising rock samples or drill cores by offering interactive metadata and QC functions to aid maintain data quality throughout a survey.

The KT-10 is capable of recording single measurements or being used in scan mode which enables a user to record magnetic susceptibility & conductivity profiles of drill cores, monolith samples or exposed sections. Results collected in scan mode are able to be transmitted via Bluetooth and displayed/ recorded in real time to an external device running GeoVision, an Android App supplied with the instrument. GeoVision enables the operator to browse through records, display field measurements and better manage/ adapt their field acquisition strategy to account for observations made during data acquisition.

KT-10 Magnetic Susceptibility and Conductivity Meter. Each instrument is supplied with a pre-installed calibration curve derived from samples containing different concentrations of magnetite. Alternatively operators are able to formulate and save their own calibration curves.
