    Well, if the 1mH coil at the left is an open slug, then this circuit will respond to changing magnetic fields. The current-to-voltage converter stage (the opamp) has a single pole 3dB lowpass at around 1kHz, so this circuit looks to be mainly for sensing powerline frequency B fields. Hey, maybe you should offer to visit Buisness Man and help him with his power problems!
