VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 13, 2023 / Fury Gold Mines Limited (TSX:FURY)(NYSE American:FURY) ("Fury" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on targeting at the wholly owned Lac Clarkie project immediately to the east of its 100% owned Eau Claire project in the Eeyou Istchee Territory in the James Bay region of Quebec. The Company has defined a total of eight gold targets through the completion of a B-horizon soil sampling program (Figure 1). Six of the targets lie along the Cannard Deformation Zone which hosts numerous gold occurrences along its >100 kilometre (km) mapped extent including Fury's Eau Claire Deposit and Percival Property. Fury is working to prioritize these newly defined targets for follow-up in 2023 with the aim of advancing a number of these targets to the drill-ready stage.

"The identification of eight new gold targets at the Lac Clarkie project is a significant step forward in our goal of creating an active pipeline of high-quality new discovery opportunities to complement the growing Eau Claire deposit. Importantly, six of the eight targets lay along the same extension of the productive and highly prospective Cannard Deformation Zone which also hosts the Percival Prospect and the Eau Claire Deposit," commented Tim Clark, CEO of Fury. "In the coming weeks, we will be announcing our 2023 exploration plans which will focus on expanding our recent drilling successes as well as bringing several discovery opportunities throughout our portfolio to the drill-ready stage. Fury is well funded with C$9.3 million in the treasury, no debt, and approximately C$60 million worth of marketable securities held in shares of Dolly Varden Silver."

Lac Clarkie

The wholly owned 35,000 hectare (ha) Lac Clarkie project is contiguous to the east of the Company's flagship Eau Claire project covering an additional 20km of the regional Cannard Deformation Zone. The Cannard Deformation Zone is host to over ten gold occurrences within Fury's Eau Claire project alone, most notably the high-grade Eau Claire Deposit and Percival Prospect. The 2022 soil sampling program focused on three discrete regional targets derived from a combination of; reinterpreted geophysical data, updated geological framework, and comprehensive historical data compilation. The regional targets focused along large-scale east-west and northwest-southeast trending structures. These structures are interpreted to be the likely source for the gold anomalies identified from limited historical gracial till and float sampling. Results of up to 85 parts per billion (ppb) gold and 590ppb silver were returned from the 2,529 samples collected. A total of 62 samples returned values above 50ppb gold, background values in gold as defined by the 50th percentile are 1ppb gold. Ninety-two samples returned results above 100ppb silver, background value of silver from the survey as defined by the 50th percentile are 20ppb silver. Table 1 below summarizes the eight newly identified gold in soil anomalies.

"Fury's recognition of the importance of the Cannard Deformation Zone as a regional controlling feature on the distribution of gold mineralization within Fury's properties has allowed us to rapidly advance analogue greenfields exploration targets through systematic disciplined exploration. We are looking forward to following up on these eight new robust gold in soil anomalies in 2023 to advance them to the drill-ready stage," stated Bryan Atkinson, P.Geol., SVP Exploration of Fury.

Technical Disclosure

B-horizon soil sampling

Till samples were collected for the B-horizon within a predefined grid with a spacing of 50 metres along 200 metre spaced line for overall coverage of 100 x 200 metres. Samples are screened using 180um screen analyzed for gold and multi-element using 50g (or 25g where insufficient material) nominal weight trace level method by aqua regia extraction and ICP-MS finish method (AuME-TL44 or AuME-TL43) on a -180um fraction. QA/QC programs using internal standard samples, field and lab duplicates, re-assays, and blanks indicate good accuracy and precision in a large majority of standards assayed.

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.
