Fury and Southern Silver Consolidate Magistral Land Package

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 24, 2006) - Fury Explorations Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:FUR) is pleased to report an expansion of the Magistral Project land package currently under option to Southern Silver Exploration Corp. ("Southern") (TSX VENTURE:SSV)(FWB:SEG).

Southern, on behalf of both companies was the successful bidder in an auction conducted by the Mexican Federal Government with respect to the sale of the 1,366 hectare EL Magistral Mineral Concession in the Ameca region in the State of Jalisco, Mexico. The newly acquired concession will fall under the previously announced option agreement (see PR dated July 17, 2006), whereby Southern can earn up to 65% of Fury's Magistral I concession.

The Magistral I and El Magistral properties completely surround Southern's La Sorpresa claims upon which phase I exploration work was completed, targeting high-grade copper mineralization in quartz-tourmaline breccias within disseminated copper-bearing intrusives. Southern has initiated a second phase drilling program of up to 2500 metres utilizing a combined RC and diamond drill rig to test the extension of several near surface mineralized zones identified on the La Sorpresa claims. An application has been filed for the permitting of three drill holes on one new target area within the Fury / Southern claim position, which was generated through compilation of airborne geophysical data, surface mapping and sampling, and will be tested during the current program.

Fury Explorations is a junior exploration and development company focused on reaching near-term silver production at its Nevada based Taylor Project and exploring other early stage, base and precious metals properties in North America. Fury is well positioned for the possibility of entering into commercial production and further growth. The Company currently has 25.0 million shares issued and working capital totaling approximately $8.3 million.
