Science and research. Mineral prospecting. Electrical prospecting for metallic minerals may be carried on by using the dual coil radiometer to measure the electro-magnetic field of the earth, as it may be influenced by the presence of an ore body. Students training for war jobs in the minerals industry, or for service with the armed forces, are shown hunting for ore. A student at the left operates the field generator. The coils about the middles of the two others are made up of many strands of copper wire which act as transformers. The student second from right watches the level on his stationary coil to measure the electro-magnetic field. After completion of training, many students will be given commissions in naval ordnance, where they will use electronics for airplane detection. Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Colorado
