INTRODUCTION

The traditional resistivity method maps the electrical properties of the earth by measuring differences in potential at the earth's surface caused by galvanic current flow between two current electrodes. The magnetometric resistivity (MMR) method differs from the traditional method in that the potential electrodes are replaced by a highly sensitive coil or magnetometer and one or more components of the magnetic field are recorded.
