Kincora Copper Announces Intersections With Improved Copper and Gold Grades


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 15, 2011) - Kincora Copper Limited (TSX VENTURE:KCC) ("Kincora") is pleased to announce an Exploration Update for the Bronze Fox Project (Buyant License), which occupies 223km2 of land 140km northeast of the world class Oyu Tolgoi project, on the same metallogenic belt.

Exploration update

 --  Kincora completed a further 1,240m of diamond (core) drilling in October
    (in addition to the 10,035m completed by end-September) 
--  5 holes have been drilled in October and assay results have been
    returned for 3 holes (two in West Kasulu and one in Sophie North). The
    significant results include: 
    --  F31 West Kasulu: Intersected high copper grade of 8.11% and high
        gold grade of 1.5g/t over 1m within a 106m intersection of 0.40%CuEq
    --  F35 West Kasulu: Located 1.3km to the east of F31. About 50% of the
        intervals intersected copper with the highest Cu content of 0.41%
        and highest gold content of 0.46g/t. 
    --  F36 Sophie North: Gold anomalies intersected. From 36 to 342m, 10 1m
        intervals intersected greater than 0.1g/t Au, with the highest
        return of 0.44g/t Au. 
--  A surface rock chip sample program (60 samples) to test for potential
    gold in an area 3km south of Leca Pass resulted in 11 assays with gold
    grade of greater than 0.5g/t, including 8 samples with greater than 1g/t
    Au, and 3 samples with greater than 19g/t Au, the highest being 91.6g/t
    Au. Those samples are scattered in quartz veins along a shear zone which
    is relatively underexplored. 8 samples with greater than 1g/t Au were
    distributed in a zone of 500m in length.

 1.  Quality assurance: All of the core samples were assayed by Actlabs, an
    internationally recognized laboratory.
    All the samples were assayed with 50 gram fire assay for Au, and ICP
    assay for Cu, Mo, Ag, Zn, etc. covering a total of 36 elements. Au fire
    assays were done by ActLabs in Ulaanbaatar and ICP assays were done at
    ActLabs in Canada. 5% of standards, 3% of blanks, and 1% of duplicates
    were used for assay quality control. The Company has a formal sample
    analysis service contract with ActLabs. 

Next steps
 --  A systematic rock chip sampling program over all of the historical
    Soviet trenches has been conducted at intervals of 2m. 
--  A soil sampling program commenced on 5th November with a 200m grid to
    cover the whole license area. The objective of this program is to screen
    gold mineralization potential, especially for the area outside of the
    current work concentration areas (West Kasulu, Leca Pass, Dunlop Fox,
    Buchanan Heights and Sophie North). 
--  Kincora plans to carry out a high resolution ground magnetic survey
    program. The objective of this survey is to map structure and
    alterations associated with magnetite destruction, and also to highlight
    any magnetic intrusions, especially for the covered terrain which
    composes significant parts of the license area. 
--  Kincora is planning further IP survey lines which aim to follow up rock
    chip samples anomalous in gold, to extend and complement previous IP

"We are excited with the recent results, - says Igor Kovarsky, President & CEO. " Kincora will complete the 2011 drilling program in November and will concentrate on geophysics and geochemistry studies, as well as adding core cutting facilities to expedite sample delivery to the labs for assaying. During the winter we will design the 2012 exploration program to agressively attack specific areas based on the results and knowledge obtained from the above mentioned surveys." - added Mr. Kovarsky.
