Noront's Target Identified for KWG by 2005 DIAGNOS' Study

BROSSARD, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 18, 2007) - DIAGNOS inc. ("DIAGNOS" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:ADK), a leader in the use of artificial intelligence ("AI") and advanced knowledge extraction techniques, announced today that its proprietary CARDS (Computer Aided Resource Detection Software) system was used in 2005 in a study of the McFauld Lake area data on behalf of KWG Resources Inc. The study premised that a high priority target for base metal concentration was indicated at the precise coordinates of Noront's discovery, announced earlier in September of this year.

In fact, on May 25, 2005, DIAGNOS provided a report to KWG Resources Inc. targeting the best zones within its claim blocks for potential base metal deposits using the CARDS system. Some other targets were also identified outside the property owned by KWG among which, one was exactly on the Noront's current discovery of nickel and copper mineralization.

The KWG-sponsored DIAGNOS study had predicted that this zone had a high probability of copper discovery. Using historical data, anomalies, positive and negative drill sites, MAG and other information as training points, the system provided a local signature that was validated with some historical positive points. Targets generated were not all on KWG property; one zone with the highest probability was on Noront's discovery.

Since Noront's announcement, KWG and Spider have decided to drill some other targets vetted by the DIAGNOS study, as a priority.


DIAGNOS inc. has developed data mining software and provides data mining services. The Corporation designed and developed MCubiX, a data mining software suite capable of extracting knowledge from historical data - in the form of images, text or traditional databases - and making predictions that improve business processes and decision making ability. CARDS (Computer Aided Resource Detection Software) can be applied to several sectors of prospecting, such as diamond, gold, zinc, copper and the oil and gas, and each one of these resources require a distinct methodology endorsed by the application. CARDS is an excellent tool in exploration which major utility is time and money saving and increased efficiency. For further information, please visit our Website at www.diagnos.ca.
