    Abstract

    Magnetic gradiometers are powerful tools for mineral exploration. To avoid the problem of heading errors, gradiometers must be made from low susceptibility materials. We compare possible low susceptibility materials for gradiometer use and strategies for minimizing magnetic contamination. In particular, we present the favourable magnetic properties of the advanced engineering plastic Torlon.
