    Abstract

    A series of downhole MMR surveys were conducted near Broken Hill, NSW in Australia to determine how receiver equipment choices affected the amount of noise visible in MMR data (as opposed to geologic or spheric noise). Noise analyses performed on the data indicate that the main contributor to high noise levels in MMR data comes from use of a three-component EM probe as opposed to a singlecomponent EM probe. Additional noise levels can be reduced through the use of full-waveform, multipurpose receiver systems. These systems allow for the use of tapered-stacking which is a more effective method of eliminating spheric and/or powerline transients than the boxcar-stacking method used by traditional receiver systems.
