An airborne electromagnetic device, designed to measure electromagnetic anomalies in a manner that readily lends itself to the interpretation of conductivity and type-body, led to the Aero-Newmont vertical coaxial coil EM system. This mining prospecting device, applicable chiefly in Canadian-type mineral environment, is rigidly mounted on an S-55 helicopter. Continued studies in the theory of interpretation for such a device, plus an accumulation of over 5 years of field experience, have provided a knowledge of the limitations which compliment the interpretation procedure to produce a surprisingly accurate and useful exploration tool.
