Fortuna Reports Extension of High-Grade Mineralization at Bateas Vein in Caylloma Mine

May 24, 2012

VANCOUVER, May 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. (NYSE: FSM | TSX: FVI | BVL: FVI
| Frankfurt: F4S.F)
is pleased to announce the results of recently completed exploration
drilling of the Bateas Vein at the Caylloma Mine located in Arequipa,
Peru. A nineteen hole drill program was completed in late April to
explore extensions of high-grade mineralization in the Bateas vein
system. Production from the Bateas Vein is currently sourced from the
12(th) level and constitutes approximately 18% of the silver ounces delivered
to the mill.

Highlights of the drilling include:

        --  BATS006411    637 g/t Ag over 1.70 m from 158.50 m
        --  BATS008112    858 g/t Ag over 0.45 m from 210.35 m
        --  BATS008412    748 g/t Ag over 0.75 m from 101.70 m
        --  BATS008612  2,390 g/t Ag over 0.20 m from 68.80 m
        --  BATS008712    639 g/t Ag over 0.80 m from 63.40 m
        --  BATS008812    745 g/t Ag over 2.00 m from 82.00 m

Widths reported are drill hole widths with the drill holes generally
oriented sub-perpendicular to the strike of the vein. True widths are
estimated at 65 to 85% of the drill hole widths in general. Assay
results from the nineteen hole program are summarized below with
length-weighted assay averages reported for the principal mineralized
intervals. A drill hole location map and longitudinal sections for the
Bateas Vein system are available on Fortuna’s website:  [link to Caylloma Maps and Sections].

“The Bateas drill program has been successful in demonstrating the
continuity of the Bateas Vein system from the 12(th) level where mining is currently taking place to the surface, a vertical
distance of approximately 350 meters,” commented Dr. Thomas Vehrs, Vice
President of Exploration. “We are also encouraged by the mineralized
intercepts encountered in drill holes BATS008612, BATS008912 and
BATS009312 at elevations between 4750 m and 4850 m. These intercepts
may reflect the presence of a new ore shoot and are open-to-depth where
higher grade mineralization is anticipated between the 10(th) and 12(th) levels of the mine (4700 to 4500 meters elevation).”

Brownfields 2012 Exploration Program

Fortuna’s Brownfields exploration program for 2012 includes 24,000
meters of diamond drilling in the Caylloma District and 15,000 meters
of diamond drilling in the San Jose mine area. Currently, the company
has four drill rigs operating in the Caylloma District and two drill
rigs that are being mobilized to the San Jose area. A third drill rig
may be added to the San Jose program in June subject to the
satisfactory advancement of target evaluation activities.

Mario Project, Peru

Fortuna has recently completed a 7,000 meter Phase I drill program at
the Mario Project located in the department of Junin in central Peru.
In May of 2011, Fortuna signed an option agreement with Crocodile Gold
Corp. granting Fortuna the exclusive right to acquire a 100% interest
in the Mario Project, subject to certain underlying royalty conditions
(see Fortuna news release dated May 30, 2011). While encouraging
results were encountered in a number of the drill holes, the program
was not successful in demonstrating the potential to meet the minimum
target size established for the project and a decision has been made to
terminate the option agreement and abandon the project. A summary of
the Phase I drill results is appended to this news release.

Quality Assurance & Quality Control

Following detailed geological and geotechnical logging, drill core
samples are split on-site by diamond sawing. One half of the core is
submitted to the ALS Chemex Laboratory in Lima Peru. The remaining half
core is retained on-site for verification and reference purposes.
Following preparation, the samples are assayed for gold by standard
fire assay methods and for silver and base metals by ICP and atomic
absorption methods utilizing aqua regia digestion. The QA-QC program
includes the blind insertion of certified reference standards and assay
blanks at a frequency of approximately 1 per 15 normal samples.

Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains forward-looking statements which constitute
“forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable Canadian
securities legislation and “forward-looking statements” within the
meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities
Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  Forward-looking statements are
statements that are not historical facts and that are subject to a
variety of risks and uncertainties which could cause actual events or
results to differ materially from those reflected in the
forward-looking statements. When used in this document, the words such
as “anticipates”, “believes”, “plans”, “estimates”, “expects”,
“forecasts”, “targets”, “intends”, “advance”, “projects”, “calculates”
and similar expressions are forward-looking statements.

The forward-looking statements are based on an assumed set of economic
conditions and courses of actions, including estimates of future
production levels, expectations regarding mine production costs,
expected  trends in mineral prices and statements that describe
Fortuna’s future plans, objectives or goals. There is a significant
risk that actual results will vary, perhaps materially, from results
projected depending on such factors as changes in general economic
conditions and financial markets, changes in prices for silver and
other metals, technological and operational hazards in  Fortuna’s
mining and mine development activities, risks inherent in mineral 
exploration, uncertainties inherent in the estimation of mineral
reserves, mineral resources, and metal recoveries, the timing and
availability of financing, governmental and other approvals, political
unrest or instability in countries where Fortuna is active, labor
relations and other risk factors.

Although Fortuna has attempted to identify important factors that could
cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in
forward-looking statements or information, there may be other factors
that cause results to be materially different from those anticipated,
described, estimated, assessed or intended. There can be no assurance
that any forward-looking statements or information will prove to be
accurate as actual results and future events could differ materially
from those anticipated in such statements or information. Accordingly,
readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements
or information.
