Vancouver, January 11, 2017– Fortuna Silver Mines, Inc. (NYSE: FSM) (TSX: FVI) is pleased to announce 2016 production figures from its two underground operating silver mines, the San Jose Mine in Mexico and the Caylloma Mine in Peru. The company produced 7.4 million ounces of silver and 46.6 thousand ounces of gold or 10.2 million Ag Eq* ounces. Jorge A.
