The Application of MAGNASAT to Drill Core Analysis

Supplier: Ultra-Dynamics
09 January, 2009

The MAGNASAT technology has been adapted to provide magnetic susceptibility measurements of drill cores.

The system consists of a measurement coil through which the drill core is passed and a reference coil and electronics for data processing. The system is designed for ease of use and rapid drill core processing and a drill core can be processed in a few seconds.


The technology is applicable to all types of drill cores with the option for drill core analysis in the laboratory or out in the field.

Features and Benefits

  • Absolute measurement - results are output in m3/kg
  • Fast results - materials handling system allows a drill core to be analysed in a few seconds
  • Low cost - manual handling system with all the benefits of an automatic handling system but at a low cost
  • Multi-frequency capability- allows investigations into frequency effects on magnetic susceptibility
  • Extended capability - optional real and imaginary magnetic susceptibility can be provided
