Fortuna Silver Mines Inc announced that although weather conditions at the Lindero gold Project site in the Province of Salta, Argentina have remained normal, unusually heavy rainfall over the past week in other regions of the Province has caused damage to two segments of the 450 kilometer road from the city of Salta to the Lindero Project. As a result, transportation to and from the project site is restricted to light vehicles. The Company and the provincial government are working to repair the road to facilitate the transit of heavy traffic. The damage to the two segments of the road is not considered to be material, but the ability to complete the repairs to the road is subject to an improvement in weather conditions.

Starting on February 3, the Company has been gradually reducing and prioritizing on site construction activities to preserve fuel and other consumables which, given current road conditions, cannot be transported to the project site. It is currently expected that construction activities will be gradually increased during the course of next week. The Company intends to provide a comprehensive construction update later this month.
