VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 2, 2022 / Fury Gold Mines Limited (TSX:FURY)(NYSE American:FURY) ("Fury" or the "Company") is pleased to provide results for eight (8) drill holes from the Snake Lake prospect one kilometre (km) east of the defined resource at the Eau Claire deposit located in the Eeyou Istchee Territory James Bay region of Quebec. Significant intercepts include 20.70 g/t gold (Au) over 1.5metres (m) in drill hole 21SL-008, 5.16 g/t Au over 2.50m in drill hole 21SL-003 and 7.14 g/t Au over 1.5m in drill hole 21SL-009. Collectively the mineralization intercepted in this round of drilling has expanded the shallow gold mineralization footprint within the Snake Lake structural corridor to over 950m of strike extent (Figure 1).

Lengths are drill indicated core length, as insufficient drilling has been undertaken to determine true widths at this time. Main intervals - Au grade*thickness no less than 2 g/t*m with grade is no less than 1 g/t, maximum consecutive dilution 2m.

"We are very pleased to announce recent drill results at Snake Lake, as they continue to demonstrate that the high-grade gold mineralization within the Snake Lake structural corridor has room to grow east of the Eau Claire deposit," commented Tim Clark, CEO of Fury. "As we look forward, we remain focused and our confidence has increased considerably on advancing Eau Claire's eastern and western extensions, as these targets present significant discovery potential."

The reported intercepts of 7.14 g/t Au over 1.5m (21SL-009) and 4.36 g/t Au over 1.0m (21SL-006) are situated along the newly identified mineralized horizon located between the Eau Claire and Snake Lake structures, first recognized from drill hole 21SL-001, which returned intercepts of 19.6 g/t Au over 0.5m and 2.85 g/t Au over 5m (see news release dated May 18, 2021) (Figure 2). Gold mineralization along this newly identified structure, associated with quartz-feldspar porphyry dykes with abundant quartz-tourmaline veining similar to the Eau Claire style of mineralization, has now been intercepted over approximately 500m of strike. The remainder of the reported intercepts, including 20.70 g/t Au over 1.5m (21SL-008) and 5.16 g/t Au over 2.50m (21SL-003), are along the main Snake Lake structure at the contact between mafic volcanic and meta-sedimentary rocks where historical exploration focused on shallow mineralization. Fury's technical team plans to target both structures with additional drilling in 2022. Results from the eight exploration holes are listed below in Table 1.

The reported intercepts, located along the volcanic-sediment contact that characterizes the Snake Lake structure of 20.70 g/t Au over 1.5m (21SL-008) and 5.16 g/t Au over 2.5m (21SL-003) paired with previously announced intercepts of 94.10 g/t Au over 0.5m (21EC-018 - see news release dated May 18, 2021) and 6.43 g/t Au over 1.5m (21EC-010 - see news release dated March, 30, 2021), have increased the gold mineralized footprint within the Snake Lake structural corridor to 1,100m down-plunge and over 950m along strike, as illustrated in Figure 1.

Gold mineralization along the newly identified structure, located between the main Snake Lake and Eau Claire structures, has now been intercepted over approximately 500m of strike extent. The gold mineralization along this structure is hosted within mafic volcanic rocks with associated quartz-feldspar porphyry dykes and abundant quartz tourmaline veining up to 20m in width (Figure 2). The discovery and confirmation of the continuity of gold mineralization along this structure suggests a high probability of encountering new significant mineralized zones throughout the immediate area.

"We are very impressed with how quickly the high-grade gold mineralized footprint at Snake Lake is expanding through the first thirteen step-out holes, particularly along this newly identified structure. In addition to the recent success at the Hinge target we now see two mineralized structures at Snake Lake, which further confirms our belief that significant ounces can be added to the project through continued exploration," stated Michael Henrichsen, SVP Exploration of Fury.

Technical Disclosure
Analytical samples from drill holes 21SL-001 through 21SL-003 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 assays 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 for drill holes 21SL-004 through 21SL-010 were taken by sawing HQ diameter core into equal halves on site with one half 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 inductively coupled plasma - atomic emission spectrometry finish (Au-ICP22) and multi-element four acid digest ICP-AES/ICP-MS method (ME-MS61). Where Au-ICP22 results were greater than 0.5 ppm Au the assay was repeated with a 50 g nominal weight fire assay with atomic absorption finish (Au-AA24). Samples containing more than 5 ppm by Au-AA24 were re-assayed 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.
