Ultrafine Ni0.8Zn0.2Fe2O4 particles dispersed in silica (SiO2) matrix are produced by sol-gel method. The powders were subjected to X-ray diffraction to confirm the formation of crystalline phases. The physical properties such as bulk density, true density, % of porosity and % of linear shrinkage were studied. The magnetic permeability as the function of frequency from 1 kHz to 13 MHz and temperatures from room temperature to 300°C were studied for samples sintered at temperature 1250°C. The AC electrical resistivity as the function of frequency and DC electrical resistivity as the function of temperature were studied. The AC-resistivity of the order of ≥105 Ωcmand DC-resistivity ≥ 108 Ωcm were obtained at room temperature. Microstructural features of sintered samples show the presence of ferrite grains of 1-2 μm size.
