Fury Gold Mines Limited provide the fourth set of results from the 2023 drilling program at the Hinge Target, part of the high-grade Eau Claire gold project located in the Eeyou Istchee Territory in the James Bay region of Quebec. The Hinge Target continues to produce multiple stacked zones of gold-mineralized quartz tourmaline veins. Highlights from the seven drill holes include 31.77g/t gold over 3.50 metres(m) from 23EC-077; 65.30g/t gold over 0.50m and 14.25 g/t gold over 1.00m from 23EC-074; 2.56g/t gold over 7.50m from 23EC-068; and 3.41g/t gold over 6.50m and 5.00g/t gold over 3.50m from 23EC-075 (Table 1; Figure 1). The 2023 Hinge Target drilling has increased confidence in the geological model and potential for expansion of the Eau Claire resource to the west. Results from an additional five drill holes are still pending for the Hinge Target.

“Recent results out of the Hinge Target continue to remain impactful to the overall resource at Eau Claire,” commented Tim Clark, CEO of Fury. “Going forward, we’re excited for results from the remaining five holes at the Hinge Target and five holes at the Percival Prospect. Once the final results have been received and processed, we will be able to include them in the Eau Claire mineral resource update which is expected to be released at the end of Q1 or early Q2.”

Western Hinge Target

The Hinge Target is immediately adjacent and contiguous to the western edge of the high-grade Eau Claire gold deposit extending the mineralized footprint by over 400m. Drilling to date has identified nineteen discrete sub-vertical quartz tourmaline veins concentrated in two 100m wide corridors. Vertical continuity of the veining within the Hinge Target has been demonstrated over 300m through drilling. The Hinge veins remain open both to the west and up and down dip (Figure 1). These drill holes are part of a series of infill drill holes designed to tighten up the drill hole spacing within the Hinge Target to a nominal 60-80m. The continued interceptions of stacked mineralized veins through these new holes exhibit the overall continuity and robustness of the mineralized system within the Hinge Target.

“The consistent and predictable nature of the gold mineralization within the Hinge Target is extremely encouraging as we move towards the inclusion of the Hinge Target in an overall resource update for the Eau Claire project. Fury’s technical team is looking forward to receiving the final results from the 2023 Hinge drilling program in the coming weeks,” stated Bryan Atkinson, SVP of Exploration at Fury.

Sampling and Assaying Disclosure
Analytical samples for the Drill Program were taken by sawing HQ diameter core into equal halves on site with one half sent to ALS Chemex in Val D’or, Quebec, Canada 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 10 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.

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.
