Palaeomagnetic measurements have shown that greigite (Fe3S4) is a rather widespread magnetic mineral in fine grained sediments of Lake Pannon and is capable of carrying useful palaeomagnetic signal of which the extraction, however, may require some extra care. In this note we present the results of those rockmagnetic measurements that we employed for the identification of the mineral greigite as well as the extraction of the palaeomagnetic signal it may carry in some fine grained sediment of Lake Pannon. The palaeomagnetic signal carried by the (otherwise metastable) greigite in these sediment is indicative of unchanged environmental conditions over time.
