DIAGNOS Announces the Conclusion of a Study for Typhoon

BROSSARD, QUEBEC, CANADA--(Marketwire - Feb. 11, 2010) - DIAGNOS inc. ("DIAGNOS" or "the Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:ADK), a leader in the use of artificial intelligence and advanced knowledge extraction techniques, announces today the results from a study carried out by DIAGNOS' team, which utilized CARDS prediction system, for Typhoon (TSX VENTURE:TYP). The results are published on DIAGNOS website.

On a regional scale, CARDS new prediction methods (C-Cluster & AGEO), developed by DIAGNOS' team, revealed the presence of a major anomaly located 700 metres east of the McDonald showing, and potentially corresponding to a porphyry-type gold mineralization. This anomaly lies north of a high probability zone previously identified with Gocad. Previous drilling carried out in 1997 by Minerai Lac (AIG-97-08, AIG-97-14 and AIG-97-15) south of the DIAGNOS anomaly showed the auriferous potential of the area with assay results of 441 ppb Au over 8.63 m (AIG-97-08) and 1698 ppb Au over 3.25 m (AIG-97-15). Drillhole AIG-97-14 has been re-verified and re-assayed by TYPHOON's team. The principal lithology towards the end of the survey is a hematized, albitized porphyric intrusion containing a stockwerk network of quartz veins. The intrusion is mineralized with fine euhedral cubic pyrite and trace chalcopyrite. An important section of 33 metres which had not been analyzed was split in half using a diamond saw and sent for assay. The results obtained were significantly anomalous with gold values ranging from 100 to 300 ppb.

The presence of DIAGNOS' anomaly opens up a new exploration grounds with auriferous potential 700 m east of the McDonald showing and 1000 m east of the Fayolle deposit. Historical drilling south of the anomaly confirms the potential for gold in the area.
