Project Magnet was formed on December 2, 1950, as a government bureau for investigating unexplained phenomena such as U.F.O.s. On August 21, 1954, Project Magnet was officially shut down, although it continued to operate.
By 2012, Project Magnet was all but forgotten, and Lieutenant Ken Leeds was the only staff member. After Evan Cross discovered the existence of the Anomalies, Angelika Finch contacted Leeds to try and hand the Anomaly operation over to Project Magnet.
Lieutenant Leeds, wanting to incorporate the Anomaly operation into Project Magnet, began trying to get Evan Cross to hand responsibility for the Anomaly operation over to him, but Evan kept turning Leeds away.
After Leeds helped the Special Projects Group deal with a Terror Bird incursion, Evan decided to allow Project Magnet to act as a liaison between the government and the SPG, as well as help cover up the Anomaly incursions and clean up the aftermath.
After Ken Leeds handed Leggy over to Colonel Henderson Hall, Hall approved the reactivation of Project Magnet to battle the Anomaly phenomenon pending oversight. Colonel Hall also sent Lisa Merryweather to act as a liaison, and ordered that Project Magnet use the Anomalies to collect creatures, plants and bacteria from the Past to use to help undo the damage caused by Humanity to present day Earth's ecosystem.
Following its reactivation, Project Magnet began to restaff up and return to full capacity. When a Pachycephalosaurus appeared in Vancouver, Project Magnet went to help deal with the incursion and to cover up the incursion and the damage caused by the creature.
After footage of a Triceratops went viral on the Internet, a squad of Project Magnet soldiers led by Ken Leeds travelled to the site to contain the creature. Project Magnet apparently hoped to trranquilise and capture the creature, but these intentions were compromised when they were forced to help Evan Cross and Dylan Weir return the Triceratops through the Anomaly.
After Leggy escaped Colonel Hall's custody, Ken Leeds was not informed of the incursion, and a squad of soldiers led by Major Douglas were sent by Colonel Hall to recapture Leggy. Leeds was ultimately arrested after helping Evan and Dylan and turning on Major Douglas.
Project Magnet made a failed attempt to secure the Special Projects Group's Anomaly technology. Colonel Hall later managed to force Evan Cross to give Project Magnet control over the SPG, with Angelika Finch as Project Magnet's new civilian director.
After Toby Nance was poisoned by a Brontoscorpio at Britannia Beach, the Special Projects Group were forced to call in help from Project Magnet and in the process reveal the presence of the Anomaly there to them. Project Magnet subsequently secured the Anomaly, but were forbidden by Ken Leeds from going through to collect specimens, and had Toby treated at a military hospital.
At Angelika Finch's request, Project Magnet sent a large military search-and-rescue squad led by Colonel Hall through the Britannia Beach Anomaly to rescue Evan and Dylan Weir from the other side. The squad managed to bring Evan and Dylan back through the Anomaly with them to the Present along with an Albertosaurus, Connor Temple and Kieran Coles; and after discovering that the other side of the Anomaly was part of a Spaghetti Junction, Colonel Hall had Project Magnet secure the Anomaly site and send heavy military personnel.
When the Albertosaurus broke free and went on a rampage, Project Magnet initially tried to kill the creature, until Colonel Hall was attacked by it and Ken Leeds ordered the soldiers to stand down and allow the Special Projects Group to force the Albertosaurus back through the Anomaly.
