Fury's Taylor Silver Project Permitting to Proceed Under Environmental Analysis

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 16, 2008) - Fury Explorations Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:FUR) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the USDA Forest Service (USFS) for the final stage of USFS permitting for the Company's Taylor Project (the Project) located near Ely Nevada.

The MOU has been issued as a result of the submission of the Plan of Operations (POO) in December 2007 and defines that the final USFS environmental review of the Project will be based on an Environmental Assessment (EA). An EA is the most straightforward of the environmental review processes that the USFS could have chosen to impose.

The USFS and the Company have agreed to engage Knight Piesold and Company of Denver Colorado for the development of the EA and the work has already begun. Knight Piesold is very familiar with the Project having developed all of the other permit applications which have been completed to date.
