Fortuna Completes Transaction To Purchase 100% Of The Taviche Oeste Concession

VANCOUVER, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. (NYSE: FSM | TSX: FVI | BVL: FVI | Frankfurt: F4S.F) is pleased to announce that the company has made the final US$6.0 million option payment to purchase the remaining 45% interest in the Taviche Oeste Concession.  Fortuna now holds a 100% undivided interest in the Taviche Oeste concession which contains the Trinidad North discovery. The company will continue to advance exploration efforts on the high-grade silver-gold Trinidad North discovery which remains open to the north and to depth.

Commenting on the acquisition, Jorge A. Ganoza, President and CEO, said, "Given the exciting exploration success at Trinidad North, the company believes it is prudent to control 100% interest as we work to put this new high-grade silver-gold mineralized area into production by early 2015."  Mr. Ganoza continued, "We expect to announce an initial resource estimation for Trinidad North during the fourth quarter of 2013."
