An experiment to determine the nature of primary cosmic rays of energy > 1014 eV by studying high energy (> 220 GeV) muons and their correlations with other parameters of extensive air showers generated by them, was carried out at Kolar Gold Fields, India (atmospheric depth of 920 g cm-2). An accurate estimate of shower parameters in showers as small as 104 particles was achieved by means of a closely packed array of large area detectors and by employing special methods of analysis. In this paper, the details of the array, the data recording system, the procedure of data analysis and error estimates are described.
