Fortuna Appoints David Farrell To The Board Of Directors

VANCOUVER, July 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. (NYSE: FSM | TSX: FVI | BVL: FVI | Frankfurt: F4S.F) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. David P. Farrell to the Board of Directors of Fortuna.

David Farrell is President of Davisa Consulting, a private consulting firm working with global mining companies.  Prior to founding Davisa in 2011, David was Managing Director, Mergers & Acquisitions at Endeavour Financial where he successfully closed over US$25 billion worth of M&A transactions for junior and mid-tier natural resource companies.  Before his 12 years at Endeavour Financial, David was a lawyer at Stikeman Elliott, working in Vancouver, Budapest and London.  He graduated from the University of British Columbia with a B.Comm (Honours, Finance) and an LL.B and is called to the bar in both British Columbia and England.  David also serves as a director of Northern Vertex Mining Corp. and is a board and finance committee member of Yaletown House, a non-profit, critical-care seniors' residence in downtown Vancouver.

Simon Ridgway, Chairman of the Board of Fortuna, commented:  "I'm delighted that David has agreed to join Fortuna's Board.  A few years ago he and I had the opportunity to work together on the Board of another resource company and I was impressed by his measured contribution to the oversight of that company.  His background in M&A transactions in mining will add valuable depth to the Board as we look to grow our core silver mining business."

Jorge A. Ganoza, CEO and Director of Fortuna, said: "On behalf of the Fortuna team, I would like to welcome David to our Board.  We look forward to benefitting from his experience as we continue to identify potential business opportunities for the company."
