Preliminary results from a 349-day run (live time) with a 565 kg Pb target and a 166-day background measurement are presented. Three minor anomalies were detected in muon-suppressed neutron multiplicity spectra. The multiplicities of these excesses match the outcome of an earlier, similar but independent measurement. The nature of the anomalies remains unclear, but, in principle, they may be a signature of self-annihilation of a Weakly Interacting Massive Particle (WIMP) with a mass around 10 GeV/c2. The expected cross section would be around 10E-42 cm2 for Spin Dependent and 10E-46 cm2 for Spin Independent interactions. Analysis of the event rate, based on the statistical uncertainty, indicates that cross-section limits for Dark Matter (DM) mass range of approximately 3-40 GeV/c2 can be investigated with an upgraded NEMESIS setup.
