Luke Leslie, who has been involved with Kincora since its formation, will take on the position of non-executive chairman.
He has previous M&A and capital market transaction experience, including in Mongolia where he has worked on acquisitions in the mining and metals sector.
The other new addition to the board is John Holliday who will step up from his current position as chair of Kincora’s technical committee to become the independent non-executive technical director.
John has a “track record of success” in gold-copper deposit exploration and discovery, particularly within concealed porphyries such as those that the Oyu Tolgoi-Tsagaan Suvarga copper belt – where Kincora has several assets – is prospective for.
“Luke and John have impressive track records in their respective fields and I am confident the new internal positions will only further support significant contributions to Kincora’s exploration and expansion strategies,” said Kincora President and chief executive Sam Spring.
