BROSSARD, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 9, 2011) - DIAGNOS inc. ("DIAGNOS" or "the Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:ADK), a leader in the use of artificial intelligence and advanced knowledge-extraction techniques, announced today the signature of an agreement with NioGold Mining Corporation ("NioGold") (TSX VENTURE:NOX) to analyze its data within the Malartic mining camp in the Abitibi district of Quebec.
"Last January 13th, we announced that several priority targets had been identified from among the many properties at NioGold's Malartic camp, with particular attention paid to little explored sectors where geological and structural conditions are favorable. Following our exhaustive compilation work of the past few years, we have accumulated a considerable amount of data. Because of that, we decided to take the DIAGNOS CARDS service to our Bloc Marban projects, under an option by Aurizon Mines Ltd., Malartic Hygrade, Malartic H and Camflo West. In the next few months, we will start drilling in the best exploration zones targeted by CARDS and our team of geologists," said Rock Lefrancois, President of NioGold Mining Corporation.
DIAGNOS will be helping NioGold find targets by using CARDS (Computer Aided Resource Detection System) technology to identify sites with the same signature as known mines and deposits.
