Kincora is focused on the discovery of the next generation of Tier 1 porphyries in Mongolia and further countercyclical corporate opportunities. The Company has an industry leading technical team, credited with multiple discoveries of Tier 1 copper assets, and a sophisticated shareholder register. Kincora is executing the first modern systematic exploration program across a district-scale landholding in the highly mineralized, but vastly under-explored Southern Gobi copper-gold porphyry belt, which following an oversubscribed C$6.25 million equity raising in June, supports well funded exploration and project generation budget.
