This new low-cost Cesium vapor magnetometer system offers the mining/oil/gas survey companies the best total field magnetic survey tool available. Based on our industry standard G-858 MagMapper system , the G-859 incorporates all of the reliability and proven performance in a lightweight survey package with integrated WAAS/EGNOS enabled Novatel. GPS.


The G-859 Mining Mag uses a graphical interface to make survey design and data acquisition quick and efficient. A "Simple" or “Mapped” Mode uses line numbers and known staked reference points to define the map parameters. Or the user may use the integrated Novatel Smart Antenna™ GPS for mapping positions automatically. Position information may come from an external GPS, from regularly spaced fiducial marks input by the operator or both. At any time, the user may switch to “profile” mode to observe the last 5 data lines as stacked profiles.

Data is collected in up to 5 separate survey files and transferred via high speed RS-232 data link (or USB with converter) to a computer for further analysis and map generation. The full featured graphical data editing program MagMap2000 is provided to allow repositioning, realignment, GPS smoothing, data filtering and interpolation of the data. After editing, the data is formatted in either Surfer for Windows or Geosoft formats for further plotting and analysis.


G-859 data acquisition offers either continuous (automatic) or discrete station recording. Data quality is uniformly high and lower costs are inherent for most projects due to the high sampling rate of the instrument in continuous mode. This allows the operator to survey an area at a fast pace, covering as much as 10 times more area in a given time period than other magnetometers.


In addition to its speed and sensitivity, the G-859 is also reliable, economical, and easy to use. Electrical connectors on the G-859’s sensor have been eliminated in order to increase reliability and reduce setup time. The G-859’s internal firmware has been streamlined to include those features important for mining exploration. We are so confident in the improved design of the G-859 that it comes with 2 Year Warranty! As for economy - Contact Heritage Geophysics for a quotation today! You’ll be pleasantly surprised.


The concentration of magnetic minerals often varies with geological formation or chemical alteration and can indicate hydrocarbon bearing structures or economic mineral deposits. A primary application of the G-859 Mineral Magr™ is surveying for minerals and oil/gas exploration programs. The G-859 is an excellent instrument for use in academic research and education. Can also be used for local environmental studies such as mapping waste sites, locating buried metal drums and storage tanks buried pipelines, well-heads and other sizable ferrous structures.

Magnetic Anomaly Map
Airborne vs. Land Based Cesium
Magnetic Anomaly Map Magnetic Anomaly Map

Most magnetic surveys for minerals, oil, and natural gas are initially conducted as airborne surveys. Heritage Geophysicssupplies a complete magnetometer product line for this purpose and can also offer integrated gamma ray and EM airborne survey hardware and software systems.
After interesting aeromagnetic anomalies are identified follow-up ground surveys are often performed using portable high performance land magnetometers. The purpose of these land surveys is to provide higher resolution magnetic field data and, ultimately, better information about the geologic structures it reveals.
The map on the left shows an area of approximately 1.5Km by 1.5Km and was produced from data collected from an airborne survey. The aircraft height was 70m and the line spacing 120m. The sample interval was 0.2s or approximately 14m with a grid cell size of 20m.
The map on the right is was obtained from a ground survey of the same 1.5Km by 1.5Km area as shown above but this data was acquired using a portable cesium magnetometer with its backpack-mounted sensor positioned at a height of 3 m. The line spacing was 20m and the sample interval 1m. The grid cell size is 5m.
The land data offers significantly greater anomaly definition and improved resolution compared to the airborne presentation. Individual structures such as lithologic contacts, drainage channels, and alteration zones are evident. In addition, the land data reveals a NW-SE trending structural grain not seen in the airborne data. This detailed information can be used to focus geologic mapping, sampling, and drilling programs for greater efficiency. Most importantly, these high resolution land based data also provide the basis for high resolution numerical interpretation that will better reveal the subsurface structures.
This data was collected in the Goonumbla region of Australia, provided courtesy of North Exploration Ltd.


Software The G-859 system produces raw data of the highest quality. Data is digitally recorded in compressed form in high capacity RAM and later transferred to a computer for permanent storage and processing. Sensitivity, resolution and recording rate of the cesium magnetometer are user selectable as well as mapped survey grid coordinates or GPS position data. The system is ruggedly packaged for extreme field conditions. Data storage is sufficient to record 8 hours of data at the maximum rate of 5 Hz. Battery life is approximately 8 hours powering both the Magnetometer and Novatel Smart Antenna™ GPS.


A basic software package MagMap2000 is supplied as an integral part of the G-859 system and provides:

  • Transfer of the raw magnetometer, base station and other survey data to the client PC
