Abstract
Excited states in 59Zn were observed for the first time following the fusion-evaporation reaction $\chem{^{24}Mg+{}^{40}Ca}$ 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 $\gamma$-rays in coincidence with evaporated light particles. The mirror symmetry of 59Zn and 59Cu is discussed.
