Global Mining Review,

Fury Gold Mines Ltd has commenced drilling at its Committee Bay project in the Kitikmeot region of Nunavut.

Fury controls a 270 000 ha land position, which is situated across a 300 km greenstone belt, with multiple high-grade target centres. The company’s 5000 m drill program is designed to expand the defined high-grade mineralisation at the Raven prospect, which has historical drill intercepts of 2.8 m of 31.1 g/t gold and 5.49 m of 12.6 g/t gold, and test the potential below the current resource at the Three Bluffs deposit.

Fury also plans to conduct surface exploration work at five targets located in the southern half of the belt to advance them to drill stage.

Mike Timmins, President and CEO, comments:

“Committee Bay represents a potential major gold exploration opportunity in Nunavut where some of the largest global gold discoveries have been made.

“This year’s high impact exploration plan has been designed to test significant extensions of high-grade mineralisation at both Raven and Three Bluffs, as well as advance several high priority targets on the belt to drill stage. We are very excited about this year’s program as Raven has some of the best historic drill results on the entire greenstone belt and sits on a mineralised 8 km shear zone.”
