In this paper, an independently developed device system called Surface Electromagnetic Prospecting (SEP) system was introduced through a CSAMT test at Dongguashan copper mine, east of Tonglin, Anhui province. In this area exists a strong electromagnetic interference including mineral and other human interferences, so there is a big challenge for electromagnetic exploration field work. In order to test the anti-interference ability of our system and ensure the quality of data, we applied both spectral analysis and temporal filter methods to improve the signal-to-noise ratio. After data processing, we obtained better results in our geophysical models and showed that the SEP system is able to obtain stable and reliable data in a complex and noisy environment. Consequently, the anti-interference capability of the SEP system is capable to undertake complicated exploration tasks.
