An extensive summary of classical potential solutions has been given recently by Van Nostrand and Cook (1966). This note presents a solution for the potential due to a point source of electric current placed on the earth's surface in the vicinity of a buried spherical body of arbitrary resistivity. The analysis follows the procedure suggested by Van Nostrand and Cook and is similar to that used recently by Merkel (1969, 1971).
