I have a query related to the equipment I am using for finding the mineral deposits.

I was able to get a used overhauser magnetometer through one of my friends. I was going through the product's online portal on how to use. It says we can operate the instrument in two ways, pulsed operation and continuous operation.

So, I will be visiting the forests next week with my buddies. I wish to know if the pulsed operation offers better precision in identifying the minerals. I should also be considering the battery life. So, I hope sending pulses would give me longer battery life.

Please share your suggestion and advice on my first trip with a magnetometer.

Dear Tony,
I may be partly "off base" on what I say, but please let me comment on your question. To my knowledge, magnetometers are used mainly by professional mineral deposits exploration geologists and geophysicists, and perhaps also by treasure hunters and meteorite collectors. Because this Forum is composed of persons who are interested in mineralogy and in the collecting of worldwide fine mineral specimens, I don't think there are likely to be many members among us who have much expertise relating to magnetometers, though a few probably do have experience in exploration geophysics. It's not really the kind of group to expect much of an answer about your question--though, someone else may surprise me and answer you.
