The magnetic method is one of the best geophysical techniques used for determining depth to magnetic source bodies (and possibly sediment thickness) and delineating subsurface structures Large-scale aeromagnetic surveys have been used to locate faults, shear zones and fractures Such zones may serve as potential hosts for a variety of minerals and may be used as guidance for exploration of the epigenetic, stress-related mineralisation in the surrounding rocks (Paterson and Reeves, 1985) Sediment thickness required for hydrocarbons (oil and/gas) to form or be generated varies from place to place.
