"Following the Ibex transaction and appointment of the new technical team, Kincora has implemented remuneration packages where the technical committee and board receive over 70% of total compensation in shares, issued quarterly in arrears,” explained Sam Spring, president and chief executive officer of Kincora.
"The team in place has a unique track record of Tier 1 copper porphyry success, expansion and operating activities in Mongolia, and such remuneration packages provides skin in the game, remuneration aligned with shareholders and supports capital constrained budgets maximizing value-add activities. The company also has high insider ownership with the board, technical and advisory teams representing over 45% of outstanding common shares,” Spring continued.
"As initial field season activities continue and preparations advance looking to drill two targets with geological models analogous to the nearby large-scale copper mines, Kincora is attending PDAC (Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada), with further marketing later in the month to increase awareness of our exploration and expansion strategy following completion of the Ibex transaction only last quarter," Spring concluded.
