This is described in the article.  Look @ the first figure to 'see' it: 


But basically... 
  The caver carries the Tx and carefully suspends it vertically in the cave - it's weighted to hang this way.  This makes the H field perpendicular to the ground directly over the vertically oriented TX.  

  You walk over the ground above with the RX loopstick horizontal and find the null in two orthogonal directions.  Bazinga!
