Excited states in 59Zn were observed for the first time following the fusion-evaporation reaction at a beam energy of 60 MeV. The GASP array in conjunction with the ISIS Silicon ball and the NeutronRing allowed for the detection of -rays in coincidence with evaporated light particles. The mirror symmetry of 59Zn and 59Cu is discussed.
