A total of 32 C horizon till samples were collected at 100 to 200 m intervals from the same three NW-SE transects used for the detailed total field ground magnetic survey. Samples were collected by shovel at depths ranging from 70 to 120 cm, which is beyond the depth of anthropogenic atmospheric influence (Henderson and McMartin 1995).
