Magnetic Susceptibility Probe (BSS-02A)

The BSS-02A borehole magnetic susceptibility tool operates with the MGX II Console and is typically used in mining applications, in particular to delineate kimberlite deposits. All electronic circuitry resides in a high strength non-magnetic enclosure and features a wide measuring range from 10-5 to 10-1 cgs and will resolve strata down to 25 mm.

Technical specifications:

  • Principle of Operation: AC induction by frequency discrimination
  • Operating Frequency: 1.439 KHz
  • Sensing Coil Type: Focused dual coil
