Fury Provides Corporate and Exploration Update

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 7, 2021 / Fury Gold Mines Limited (TSX: FURY)(NYSE American:FURY) (“Fury” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide a corporate and exploration update.

Corporate Highlights

  • Appointed Tim Clark, a 23-year veteran in institutional capital markets with experience in the global metals and mining industry, to the position of CEO;
  • Mr. Clark is leading a change in strategy that focuses on exploration and discovery across the Company’s core assets;
  • Adjust primary exploration activities to focus on Fury’s core assets Eau Claire and Committee Bay, while concurrently conducting a strategic review of non-core assets;
  • Readjust capital spend with the goal of spending at least 70% of funds on exploration and drilling activities; and
  • Reduce corporate cash expenditures through certain strategic initiatives, including transitioning the Toronto office to a virtual work environment with a head office in Vancouver and leveraging several cost sharing benefits with sister companies.

“The Company’s focus and re-commitment to discovery and exploration are a reflection of the evidence and our continued confidence that Fury Gold’s high-grade resource base will continue to grow significantly larger. The Company is extremely well positioned for shareholders to benefit from improved capital allocation efficiency, pending near-term exploration results and the potential positive move in the gold market,” commented Tim Clark, CEO of Fury.

Exploration Highlights

Eau Claire:

  • Completed approximately 32,000 metres (m) of drilling at Eau Claire with 28 holes released and 10 drill holes from Snake Lake and the Western Limb Extension target areas currently pending¬†
    (Figure 1);
  • Drilling is underway at Snake Lake where three sub-parallel high-grade gold bearing structures are being explored, the Eau Claire structure, the Snake Lake structure as well as a newly identified gold bearing structure situated between the Eau Claire and Snake Lake structures. To date, the Company has extended mineralization at Snake Lake 840m down dip of historical drilling with an intercept of 94.1 g/t gold over 0.5m (see Fury news release dated May 18, 2021) (Figure 2);
  • Advancing four of nine regional targets to drill stagethrough geochemical and geophysical surveys with a focus on the 6.5-kilometre (km) Percival trend (Figure 3);
  • Planning to drill the high-grade Percival target area during the first half of 2022 (Figure 4); and
  • Commenced surface exploration program at the Eleonore South Joint Venture to advance large scale 5.5 km long geochemical anomaly to drill stage (Figure 5).

Committee Bay:

  • Completed summer drill program of 2,587m across 5 holes at Committee Bay focused on the 8km shear zone hosting the Raven prospect where alteration and veining consistent with gold mineralization were intersected (Figure 6). Historical drill results from Raven include 31.1 g/t gold over 2.8m and 9.49 g/t gold over 7.57m1. Results from this summer’s drill program are expected in mid October; and
  • Completed geochemical sampling across six regional target areas in the southwestern region of the project to advance the most robust gold anomalies to drill stage.

In total, there are 17 holes pending at the Eau Claire and Committee Bay gold projects, which are expected to be released over the next couple of months.

Technical Disclosure

The above figures reference only highlights, see the Company’s periodic filings for full details of the work being conducted and its results.

Analytical samples from exploration drill holes completed by Fury at Eau Claire between October 2020 and May 2021 were taken by sawing NQ diameter core into equal halves on site with one half being sent to Actlabs in Val d’Or, QC for preparation and then to Actlabs in Thunder Bay, ON for analysis. All samples are assayed using 50 g nominal weight fire assay with atomic absorption finish (1A2B-50) and multi-element four acid digest ICP-AES/ICP-MS method (1F2). Where 1A2B-50 results were greater than 5 ppm Au the assay were repeated with 50 g nominal weight fire assay with gravimetric finish (1A3-50). QA/QC programs using internal standard samples, field and lab duplicates and blanks indicate good overall accuracy and precision.

Analytical samples from resource expansion drill holes completed by Fury at Eau Claire between October 2020 and April 2021 were taken by sawing NQ diameter core into equal halves on site and sending one of the halves to ALS Lab in Val d’Or, QC (ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and ISO 9001:2015 accredited facility) for preparation and analysis. Preparation included crushing core samples to 90% < 2mm and pulverizing 1000g of the crushed material to better than 85% < 75 microns. All samples are assayed using 50 g nominal weight fire assay with atomic absorption finish (Au-AA24) and multi-element four acid digest ICP-AES/ICP-MS method (ME-MS61). Where Au-AA24 results are greater than 5 ppm Au the assay are repeated with 50 g nominal weight fire assay with gravimetric finish (Au-GRA22). QA/QC programs using internal and lab standard and blank samples, field and lab duplicates and re-assay indicate good overall accuracy and precision.

Analytical samples for the Resource Expansion Drill Program completed by Fury at Eau Claire between April 2021 and June 2021 and Exploration drill holes completed by Fury between May 2021 and June 2021 were taken by sawing NQ diameter core into equal halves on site and sent one of the halves to Bureau Veritas (BV) lab in Timmins, ON (ISO/IEC 17025 accredited facility) for preparation and analysis. Preparation included crashing core sample to 90% < 2mm and pulverizing 1000g of crushed material to better than 85% < 75 microns. All samples are assayed using 50 g nominal weight fire assay with atomic absorption finish (BV code FA450) and multi-element four acid digest ICP-AES/ICP-MS method (BV code MA200). Where FA450 results are greater than 5 ppm Au the assay is repeated with 50 g nominal weight fire assay with gravimetric finish (FA550-Au). QA/QC programs using internal and lab standard and blank samples, field and lab duplicates and re-assay indicate good overall accuracy and precision.

Analytical samples from all drill holes completed by Fury at Eau Claire after June 2021 were taken by sawing HQ diameter core into equal halves on site and sending one of the halves to ALS Lab in Val d’Or, QC (ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and ISO 9001:2015 accredited facility) for preparation and analysis. Preparation included crushing core samples to 90% < 2mm and pulverizing 1000g of the crushed material to better than 85% < 75 microns. All samples are assayed using 50 g nominal weight fire assay with atomic absorption finish (Au-AA24) and multi-element four acid digest ICP-AES/ICP-MS method (ME-MS61). Where Au-AA24 results are greater than 5 ppm Au the assay is repeated with 50 g nominal weight fire assay with gravimetric finish (Au-GRA22). QA/QC programs using internal and lab standard and blank samples, field and lab duplicates and re-assay indicate good overall accuracy and precision.

Historical drill samples at Eau Claire were taken by sawing NQ diameter core into equal halves on site with one half being sent to ALS Chemex in Val D’or, QC for preparation and analysis. All samples were assayed using a 50 g nominal weight fire assay with atomic absorption finish (Au-AA24) and multi-element four acid digest ICP-AES/ICP-MS method (ME-MS61). Where Au-AA24 results were greater than 5 ppm Au the assay was repeated with 50 g nominal weight fire assay with gravimetric finish (Au-GRA22). QA/QC programs using internal standard samples, field and lab duplicates and blanks indicate good overall accuracy and precision.

1. Intercepts were calculated using a minimum of a 0.25 g/t gold cut-off at beginning and end of the intercept and allowing for no more than six consecutive metres of less than 0.25 g/t gold. Minimum length of the composite intercept allowed was one metre. The 2005 Raven drilling completed by Committee Bay Resources Ltd. is historical in nature, however, the Company has reviewed the associated QA/QC data and original analytical certificates and is in the opinion the drilling and sampling were carried out following industry best practices for disclosure.
