VANCOUVER, May 31, 2023 - Fury Gold Mines Ltd. (TSX:FURY)(NYSE American:FURY) ("Fury" or the "Company") announces that a second drill has been mobilized to its wholly owned Eau Claire project in the Eeyou Istchee Territory in the James Bay region of Quebec. The second drill will follow up on the 2022 successes at the Percival Prospect. Drilling will consist of approximately 5,000 metres ("m") seeking to further extend the high-grade gold mineralization to the west and down dip, as well as testing some of the fourteen top priority targets along the Percival Trend (Figures 1 and 2). The Company also announces that Dr Lynsey Sherry, Fury's Chief Financial Officer ("CFO"), has given notice that effective June 23, 2023, she will be pursuing other professional opportunities; Mr. Phil Van Staden, currently Fury's Corporate Controller, will be appointed Interim CFO.
"We are excited to be headed back to the Percival Prospect, a target that has been very important to Fury as it shows significant room for expansion at the Eau Claire project. In addition, we are looking forward to results coming in from the Hinge Target at the Eau Claire resource which are expected in the coming weeks and months," commented Tim Clark, CEO of Fury. "On behalf of the Fury team, I would like to thank Lynsey for her valuable contributions over the last few years and wish her well in her future endeavours. Our newly appointed Interim CFO, Phil, brings diverse international accounting experience from working in several industries, and we look forward to supporting his continued growth within the Company."

The Percival Prospect is situated 14 kilometres ("km") east of the Eau Claire Deposit along the Cannard Deformation Zone which is one of the primary controls on gold mineralization within the region. The Percival gold mineralization is currently represented by a 500m by 100m footprint with high-grade gold being defined to 300m below surface hosted within folded sulphidized and silicified breccia bodies. The 2022 drilling targeted the newly recognized fold hinge geometry resulting in a significant expansion to the gold mineralized footprint with intercepts of 13.5m of 8.05 g/t gold (Au), (including 3.00m of 25.8 g/t Au) in drill hole 22KP-008 from and 85m down plunge step out and 7.5m of 4.38 g/t Au, (including 3m of 8.7 g/t Au, and 3m of 5.5 g/t Au) in drill hole 22KP-005 a 150m down dip step out (see News Release dated December 21, 2022). Fury's technical team is currently advancing and prioritizing targets from the fourteen biogeochemical targets where similarities in geology, geochemistry, structure and geophysical signatures with Percival are being observed. The goal is to advance several of these targets to the drill ready stage for possible testing later in 2023.
"The success of the 2022 Percival drill campaign has opened up the entire eastern portion of the Eau Claire property for a significant discovery. Our team is excited to be heading back out to Percival with a drill rig, taking the newly developed targeting matrix, and applying it to the entire 6km long Percival Trend," stated Bryan Atkinson, SVP Exploration at Fury.
