DIAGNOS and PUMA Hit Again in the Turgeon South-Bern Zone in New Brunswick, Finding 2% Cu Over 6 Meters

BROSSARD, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Dec. 3, 2014) - DIAGNOS Inc. ("DIAGNOS" or "the Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:ADK), a leader in the use of artificial intelligence and advanced knowledge-extraction techniques, announces today, from a Puma Exploration Inc. ("PUMA") news release dated November 20, 2014, the discovery of an extension of the Turgeon South Zone-Bern Zone that was first identified in 2012. As a direct result of prospecting a CARDS target defined by DIAGNOS, grab samples grading up to 6.92% were found approximately 4 kilometers south of the Powerline Cu-Zn Deposit (See Press Release 2013-02-26) in New Brunswick.

Here's an extract of PUMA's original news release dated November 20, 2014.

PUMA EXPLORATION SAMPLES 2.0% CU OVER 6 METERS AT TURGEON SOUTH COPPER PROJECT IN NEW BRUNSWICK

Puma Exploration Inc. has provided the results of the channel sampling and regional trenching programs conducted at Turgeon South area of the Turgeon copper-zinc project in northern New Brunswick. The most recent results confirm the high-grade copper and silver results from the 2013 prospecting program.

Stripping of Bern zone

The Bern zone is located four kilometres south of the Turgeon Cu-Zn VMS (volanogenic massive sulphide) project and is now stripped over an area of 75 metres by 25 metres. Six channels for a total of 64 metres were collected at regular spacing of 10 metres along strike. The best channel returns 2.0 per cent Cu and 3.2 grams per tonne (g/t) Ag over 6.0 metres including 2.6 per cent Cu over 4.0 metres. The Bern zone ranges from five to 10 metres wide and strikes continuously along the stripped area for 75 metres. It is composed of interlayered quartz-chalcopyrite-bornite veins and chlorite-quartz-chalcopyrite schists within a silicified gabbro. The gabbro host rock also shows anomalous copper content of up to 0.5 per cent Cu.

The highest grade copper samples collected at the Bern zone are located at the west end of the stripping area. The samples grade respectively 13.4 per cent Cu, 9.7 per cent Cu and 6.5 per cent Cu. The company anticipates restarting the striping program immediately following the spring melt.

Trenching program at Turgeon South

Seven trenches for a total length of 1,240 metres were completed on the Turgeon South project to mainly define the extension of the Bern zone but also to verify geochemical soil anomalies. The program led to the discovery of the Bern zone, 125 metres east of the eastern end of the stripped area. Similar copper mineralization was found and grab samples from the trench contain 2.1 per cent Cu, 1.1 per cent Cu and 0.3 per cent Cu indicating a total length of the Bern zone of at least 200 metres.
