Large discrepancies exist between the high-resolution 59Co neutron transmission data of Harvey et al. and the resolved resonance parameters of ENDF/B-VI. In order to provide new resonance parameters consistent with these data, the high-resolution transmission measurements have been analyzed with the computer code SAMMY. Results of that analysis are reported here.
