The company said that Sherry, formerly the vice president, controller at Goldcorp, will start at Fury's Toronto office in mid-November. She takes over from Elizabeth Senez, who had been assuming the role of interim CFO.
Sherry is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and acquired a PhD from the University of Manchester. She spent eight years with Goldcorp, and as a VP, was part of the management team that successfully completed Goldcorp's merger with Newmont in April 2019, creating the world's largest gold mining company.

She transferred to the Deloitte Vancouver mining practice as part of a global secondment program.
"It is with great pleasure that we welcome Lynsey to the team,” said CEO Mike Timmins in a statement. “Her experience, having spent several years with Goldcorp and Deloitte, will be extremely valuable as we prepare for significant growth of the Company. I am looking forward to working with Lynsey to develop Fury's financial strategy."
Sherry added: "I am excited to have the opportunity to join the team at this formative juncture in the Company's evolution and look forward to contributing to Fury's future success."
Fury Gold is a Canada-focused explorer, which has a footprint in three prolific mining regions. It aims to aggressively grow its multi-million-ounce gold platform through project development and potential new discoveries. It was formed after the completion of the deal, which saw junior Auryn Resources Inc (TSE:AUG) reorganize, spin out its Peruvian assets (NYSEAMERICAN:AUG) and acquire Eastmain Resources Inc (TSS:ER).
