    That type of aero mag survey is known as stinger work. It's more often undertaken by fixed wing aircraft in flat country, especially overseas. In hill/mountain country it becomes necessary to use helicopters to maintain an appropriate height above the ground.
    The aquired flight data is used to create a colour coded map of responses and possible anomalies.

    The mag sensor is located in the end of the stinger as far away from the fuselage as possible to reduce its interference with the readings.

    Yip, exactly.
    Don't ask me to interpret it, I've only worked on the acquisition part. Need to be a university graduate for the rainbow pictures.

    They are looking for gold so that the National Party can open it up the conservation estate for mining.
    We had one of these surveying down in Southwestland a few years ago while we were in on a tahr hunt and it just went back and forwards every fine day along grid line at fairly low speed.
    They stayed as low as they could.
    Completely buggered up the hunting !!!

    I think that one may have had more to do with understanding the fault line post quake than gold exploration.
    It would have been flown at a height stipulated in the jobs contract.
    That's a shame it coincided with your hunt.

    I know the first pilot they had and he started flying the gig before the quakes I think.
    He hated the job, so some poor bastard is hour building in a boring job.

    I've seen the NH90 buzzing out to Motueka Westbank everyday and figured that was what they were up to, glad the airforce now has such a advanced machines for the job
