VANCOUVER, Canada – February 16, 2022 – Fury Gold Mines Limited (TSX: FURY, NYSE American: FURY) (“Fury” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide results from the 2021 exploration program at the Raven prospect within its Committee Bay project in the Kitikmeot region of Nunavut. Highlights include drill intercepts of 9.18 g/t gold (Au) over 1.5 metres (m) and 7.30 g/t Au over 1.0m in drill hole 21RV-012 and 0.88 g/t Au over 8.00m in drill hole 21RV-011 as well as rock grab results of up to 32.90 g/t Au from a newly identified gold mineralized outcrop 150m to the south of the Raven structure that was drilled in this program.

The reported intercepts have extended mineralization 160m down dip and 70m along strike from historical drilling at Raven (Figure 1). These results paired with the identification of a previously untested gold mineralized structure clearly indicate the significance of the Raven structure and shear zones in general, as exploration targets along the belt. Results from the exploration holes are listed below (Table 1).

“We are very pleased to announce recent drill results from the Raven prospect, as they confirm that the mineralization is open and has room to grow. We have also identified high grades in new areas on surface, which warrant follow up, in addition to continued exploration along the identified shear zones seen at Raven,” commented Tim Clark, CEO of Fury.

“Committee Bay is a tremendous exploration opportunity for Fury, the results of this program including our recent expansion hole at Three Bluffs are the best we have seen in the past five years, and we feel there is considerable potential for world-class high-grade gold discoveries; 2022 plans at Committee Bay are currently being reviewed.”

Raven Exploration

The Raven prospect is located in the southwest third of the Committee Bay gold belt approximately 50 kilometres (km) west of the Three Bluffs deposit (Figure 1). It is situated along an 8km long shear zone where limited historical drilling intercepted 31.1 g/t Au over 2.8m and 9.49 g/t Au over 7.6m(1).  The 2021 exploration program identified a silica-sericite alteration zone with associate quartz-arsenopyrite veining as the primary control on the high-grade gold mineralization (Figure 1). The silica-sericite alteration zone is sub-parallel to highly sheared gabbros and mafic volcanic rocks which were targeted in historical drilling. This led Fury’s technical team to re-interpret the historical drilling and update the geological model allowing for refined targeting. All 2021 drill holes intercepted silica-sericite alteration with associated quartz-tourmaline arsenopyrite bearing veins with coarse visible gold with intercepts of 9.18 g/t Au over 1.5m and 7.30 g/t Au over 1.0m in drill hole 21RV-012 and 0.88 g/t Au over 8.00m in drill hole 21RV-011 (Figure 1 and Table 1). The reported intercepts have expanded the gold mineralization footprint at Raven by 160m down plunge and 70m along strike.

Mapping and sampling at Raven have identified high-grade gold mineralization 150m south of the main Raven showing along an undrilled structure at the edge of an 8km long regional shear zone. Seven rock grab samples from outcrop returned results above 10 g/t Au with a peak of 32.9 g/t Au (Figure 2). Gold and arsenic in till now define a coherent 1,400m x 500m anomaly at Raven.

“Our 2021 exploration program at Committee Bay has reinforced the importance of shear zones as a potential source for significant gold mineralization along the belt. Historically, shear zones have been underexplored at Committee Bay and Fury’s technical team is now reviewing the existing exploration data to derive additional targets for future exploration,” stated Michael Henrichsen, SVP Exploration of Fury.

Technical Disclosure

Analytical samples were taken by sawing NQ diameter core into equal halves on site and sent one of the halves to ALS Lab in Yellowknife, NWT for preparation and then to ALS Lab in Vancouver, BC for analysis. All samples are assayed using 50g nominal weight fire assay with atomic absorption finish (Au-AA26) and multi-element four acid digest ICP-AES/ICP-MS method (ME-MS61). 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.

Drill intercepts were calculated using a minimum of a 0.25 g/t gold cut-off at the 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.

1The 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 of the opinion the drilling and sampling were carried out following industry best practices for disclosure.

Michael Henrichsen, P.Geo, SVP, Exploration at Fury, is a “qualified person” within the meaning of Canadian mineral projects disclosure standards instrument 43-101 and has approved the technical disclosure in this press release.
