Fury Consolidates Interests at Éléonore South Gold Project to 100%

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 26, 2024 / Fury Gold Mines Limited (TSX:FURY)(NYSE American:FURY) ("Fury" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Fury and certain affiliates of Newmont Corporation ("Newmont") have entered into an agreement whereby Fury will purchase Newmont's 49.978% interest in Éléonore South for C$3M. As part of the consolidation of Éléonore South, Fury has also agreed to purchase Newmont's 30,392,372 shares of Sirios Resources Inc. ("Sirios") for C$1.3M. The Sirios shares will be acquired for investment purposes and Fury will evaluate its investment in Sirios on an ongoing basis with respect to any possible additional purchases or dispositions. Completion of the purchase is subject to certain conditions precedent and is expected to close in late February or early March 2024.

"We value the strong relationship with Newmont and are confident that this transaction is a positive outcome for both companies," commented Tim Clark, CEO of Fury. "Our team has historically ranked the ESJV as one of our more prolific targets for discovery. As such, we are excited to now have 100% ownership as we expect this to provide a clearer pathway for more exploration and potential upside in returns for our investors from this project consolidation and investment in Sirios."

Éléonore South Project

The Éléonore South project is strategically located in an area of prolific gold mineralization with Newmont's Éléonore Mine to the north and Sirios' Cheechoo deposit to the east (Figure 1). Prospecting to date has identified two distinct styles of mineralization within the project, structurally controlled quartz veins hosted within sedimentary rocks similar to the high-grade mineralization observed at the Éléonore Mine as well as intrusion-related disseminated gold mineralization similar to that seen at the low-grade bulk tonnage Cheechoo deposit with higher grade potential as seen at the JT and Moni prospects on the project (Table 1 and Figure 2).

Numerous gold in-till anomalies remain undrilled throughout the project (Figures 1 and 2) and will be a focus for Fury. The bulk of the untested gold anomalies are similar in characteristics to the Cheechoo style of mineralization. The JT and Moni prospects represent a potential higher-grade style of intrusion related gold mineralization with historical drilling intercepting 53.25 metres (m) of 4.22 g/t gold (Au); 6.0m of 49.50 g/t Au and 23.8m of 3.08 g/t Au (Figure 2). Several of the noted drill intercepts have not been followed up on and remain open.

"Given the calibre of gold anomalies that we see at Éléonore South paired with the access to infrastructure and excellent address, we are looking forward to exploring the project in 2024. The project is surrounded by over 4.5 million ounces of gold in two distinct mineralization styles which speaks to the overall strength of the regional gold system indicative of the exploration potential. Our team is excited to apply Fury's systematic and disciplined exploration approach to Éléonore South," stated Bryan Atkinson, P.Geol., SVP Exploration of Fury.

Historical JT and Moni Drilling

Analytical samples were taken by sawing BTW diameter core into equal halves on site and sent one of the halves to ALS Lab in Rouyn-Noranda, Val d'Or, QC, and Sudbury, ON for preparation and analysis. 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 were greater than 3 ppm Au the assay were 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 accuracy and precision in a large majority of standards assayed. True widths of mineralization are unknown based on current geometric understanding of the mineralized intervals.

David Rivard, P.Geo, Exploration Manager at Fury, is a "qualified person" within the meaning of Canadian mineral projects disclosure standards instrument 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the technical disclosures in this press release.
