"Salisha's main focus will be to broaden our market outreach and to execute our ongoing investor programs, which support the company's aggressive growth strategies. With an enhanced communications platform, we will improve connections to existing and new shareholder groups, ensure easy and open communications with neighbouring communities and provide the market with greater ease of access to management."

Fury Gold Mines is a newly established explorer focused on three prolific mining regions in Canada, which aims to advance its multi-million-ounce gold platform.
It came into being following the completion of a deal, which saw junior Auryn Resources Inc (TSE:AUG) reorganize, spin out its Peruvian assets (NYSEAMERICAN:AUG) and acquire Eastmain Resources Inc (TSS:ER).
