BROSSARD, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 02/26/13 -- DIAGNOS inc.
("DIAGNOS" or "the Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:ADK), a leader in the
use of artificial intelligence and advanced knowledge extraction
techniques, announced today, as mentioned in a press release from
Puma Exploration (TSX VENTURE:PUM) dated today February 26, 2013,
impressive results on the Diagnos CARDS copper-zinc targets on a
potential copper zone at surface, located 4.0 km from the Turgeon
Cu-Zn deposit only 25 kilometres northwest of the city of Bathurst,
A team of two geologists conducted a total of 30 days of prospecting
and mapping on the Turgeon and Turgeon South properties. The
objective of this campaign was to verify the first priority targets
set by Diagnos CARDS technology. A total of 234 grab samples were
collected from both properties.
In the 234 samples collected, 32 samples revealed interesting results
in the majority of the surface targets generated by Diagnos. Three
(3) areas of interest were observed with a new discovery of copper
for a total of 16 samples with values ranging from 0.2% to 6.9% Cu.
For now, according to the extent of the results, the area is 50m long
by 10m wide.
This new mineralized zone is composed of quartz veins with sulphides
in a silicified gabbro. The best results obtained were as follows:
-- Area 1: 6.92% Cu, 3.76% Cu, 3.28% Cu, 2.87% Cu, 2.78% Cu, 1.86% Cu (6
-- Area 2: 143 g/t Ag, 3.92% Pb and 1.39% Zn (1 sample)
-- Area 3: 0.21 g/t Au, 0.65% Cu (1 sample)
This discovery was made using Diagnos CARDS technology. Puma will be
planning around the discovery, a trenching and stripping program to
better define the resource and conduct more prospecting on unexplored
areas and targets defined by geochemistry, geophysics and Diagnos'
