The research area is generally focused more on the Mamut Copper Mine, Ranau area with a square of 54km². The study is to produce the first ground magnetic surveys contour map of the Mamut Copper Mine, where 2 locations have been selected. Location 1 situated at the east of Mamut Copper Mine's pit area while location 2 situated at the south of the pit area. Based on the residual contour map, the type of rocks and minerals can be identified with a reference to the susceptibility value. Apart from that, this study is to produce 3- dimensional image of the source beneath. Based on the 3- dimensional image, the shape of the source beneath can be seen clearly. From the result, the highest anomaly value for location I is 185.99nT with a susceptibility of 0.0046, while the lowest anomaly achieved is -17.47nT with a susceptibility of 0.00394. The highest anomaly reading for location 2 is 7991.08nT with a susceptibility of 0.2 and the lowest is -1307.77, with susceptibility of -0.03. Based on the susceptibility values, the writer made an assumption that at location 1, there are rocks beneath such as basalt, granulite, rhyolite and gabbro, and minerals such as quartz, chromite, pyrrohotite and pyrite. While at location 2, there are minerals such as magnetite, chromite and pyrrotite, and also magnetization rocks such as serpentinite and adamellite.
