Fortuna Added To The S&P/TSX Composite Index

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. Ganoza, Fortuna President, CEO and co-founder.  "As a new addition to the Index, Fortuna's management is looking forward to the heightened visibility and exposure that it brings to its constituent companies. With the opening of our San Jose mine in Mexico this fall adding to existing production from the Caylloma mine, our silver production has increased substantially and will continue to increase during 2012 providing our shareholders with growing exposure to the metal."
