DIAGNOS signs royalty agreement with MacDonald Mines

BROSSARD, Quebec, March 14 - DIAGNOS inc. ("DIAGNOS" or the
"Company") (VENTURE TSX: ADK), a leader in knowledge extraction and artificial
intelligence, announced today a new agreement for the discovery of diamonds
and base metals, on MacDonald Mines Exploration Ltd. properties using CARDS
(Computer Aided Resource Detection Software).
Kirk McKinnon, President & CEO, stated that: "MacDonald is very pleased
to enter into a working partnership with DIAGNOS inc. Given the lack of
geological exploration opportunity (no rock outcrops) in the James Bay
Lowlands, MacDonald recognizes that the quality of any data has to be very
exact in order to overcome the "Wetland Environment" of James Bay." "DIAGNOS
will help MacDonald Mines optimize their exploration program in two ways: the
first is to reduce the number of existing targets to drill and secondly
concentrate the exploration time and money on highly significant potential
rich zones. This can only be done by analyzing the past exploration programs
and focusing on the new ones" said André Larente, President of DIAGNOS.
DIAGNOS will receive a royalty based on its findings. The royalty will
- 1.5% on base metals (Net Smelter Return);
- 2.5% on net sales for diamonds;
- MacDonald Mines shall have the right to buy back 50% of the Diamond
Royalty at any time by paying DIAGNOS $1,000,000, and the right to buy
back 50% of the Metals Royalty at any time by paying DIAGNOS
- MacDonald Mines will also pay a 250,000 shares fee on each positive
kimberlite identified by the DIAGNOS.

The royalties or issuance of shares are only applicable to any Base Metal
or Diamond/Kimberlite discoveries found exclusively as a direct result of
DIAGNOS technology, interface and/or input.
"With the detailed flight survey data acquired by MacDonald Mines
Exploration Ltd., DIAGNOS will be able to determine with more accuracy the
drilling targets. The high definition data acquired makes a huge difference in
predicting new targets" said André Larente, President of DIAGNOS.
The Company's objective is to develop a royalty stream by significantly
increasing the exploration success rate of mining and oil and gas companies
around the world.

DIAGNOS develops and markets data mining software. The Company designed,
developed and markets 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.
