VANCOUVER, Dec. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. (NYSE: FSM | TSX: FVI | BVL: FVI) is pleased to announce that it has been added to the S&P/TSX Composite, effective at the market open on Monday, December 19, 2011.  The Company joins Canada's other leading silver producers on the 255-company index, which represents the largest businesses on the Toronto Stock Exchange. 

"Fortuna's addition to the S&P/TSX Composite caps a year of transformation for the Company," said Jorge A.
