FURA COMMENCES WORK ON ITS MAIDEN MINERAL RESOURCE ESTIMATE FOR COSCUEZ

Toronto, Ontario, May 2, 2018 - Fura Gems Inc.  ("Fura" or "the Company") (TSXV: FURA, OTC: FUGMF and FRA: BJ43), a gemstone mining and marketing company, has engaged Watts, Griffis and McOuat ("WGM"), an independent firm of geological and mining consultants, to ensure all existing data, work and plans for its Coscuez emerald mine in Colombia are compliant with Canadian National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") and the Council of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum standards and definitions and Best Practices Guidelines.  The Company intends to work with WGM to publish a maiden NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate for the Coscuez emerald mine. 

 

The important first step in this process is for WGM to complete a site visit to the Coscuez emerald mine in Colombia.  This visit was completed in mid-April 2018 and Fura will continue to work with WGM to provide further insight into the Coscuez emerald mine, including through its local experience and the sharing of historical information.

Dev Shetty, President & CEO of Fura, commented:

"Fura has taken an important step with commencing the work to achieve the NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate for its flagship emerald mine in Colombia, Coscuez. The successful completion of a NI 43 -101 mineral resource estimate will be the first of its kind for the Colombian emerald market." 

"We are pleased to have WGM on board who are Canada's longest running independent firm of geological and mining consultants that provides value-added professional services of the highest standards to the global mineral resource industry."
