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, New Brunswick.
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 samples)-- 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' analysis.
Mr. Dominic Gagne of Puma Exploration Inc. is the qualified person pursuant to National Instrument 43-101 and supervised the technical information presented in the news release.
