KINCORA COPPER - EXPLORATION UPDATE

Vancouver, BC – January 6th, 2014 – Kincora Copper Limited (the “Company”, “Kincora”)
(TSXV:KCC) is pleased to provide an update on results from field season activities at the flagship
Bronze Fox license completed in the final quarter of 2013:

• Independent and internal reviews of Induced Polarisation (“IP”) survey results
highlight a number of new high priority large, potentially world-class size, coppergold
porphyry targets, often with supporting geology. Encountered mineralisation
(including significant localised areas of higher grade) coincidence with lower priority
IP chargeability highs, coupled with the success of similar IP programmes at Oyu
Tolgoi and the technical successes experienced by Kincora in late 2012, supports IP
being an effective exploration tool when integrated with proper geological
information and interpretation.
• Independent consultant review of the Bronze Fox’s regional setting and encountered
hydrothermal copper activity confirms fertile signatures for porphyry mineralisation
at multiple prospects, sharing the same arc with Oyu Tolgoi and a similar
geochemical footprint to other major porphyry deposits. Unidirectional solidification
textures (“UST”) and intrusive rocks support some recent IP generated high priority
follow up targets.
• Analysis and integration of various geological and geophysical activities completed
in the current and previous field seasons are nearing completion with potential
significant bulk tonnage targets being refined. Most large scale IP targets remain
untested including a 7km long anomaly zone in central Bronze Fox, a 2km circular
anomaly in northern area and a large conductive region with high chargeability and
high gold rock chip samples to the south.

Commenting on today's announcement, Sam Spring, President and CEO of Kincora, said:
"Recently received results from two independent consultants, one relating to IP (geophysical) and
the other lithogeochemcial and petrographic analysis, have been particularly promising and warrant
a specific update ahead of our internal integration, interpretation and target identification which we
expect to be completed shortly.
In the last quarter Kincora completed one of the most active copper exploration programmes in
Mongolia during 2013, on one of the most advanced and prospective projects with the benefit of
having one of the youngest exploration licenses. The recently completed field season activities have
helped technically advance the Bronze Fox project, highlighting that most large scale IP targets
remain untested, but importantly the 2013 programme has assisted to “explain” previous results and
lead to a reinterpretation of some target zones and existing geological and geophysical information.
A number of analogies between the current stage of exploration and results at Bronze Fox and Oyu
Tolgoi in 2000/01 pre the “discovery hole” have emerged.

Coupled with positive exploration results the Company continues to look to take additional measures
to add shareholder value and assist in our ambition to become the leading listed independent copper
exploration and development company in the highly prospective and proven Oyu Tolgoi South Gobi
porphyry copper belt.”

IP programme
As previously announced in our October 23rd press release, the 2013 IP programme has confirmed
previous, and generated new, large scale high priority copper porphyry targets on the Company’s
flagship Bronze Fox license (15000X). The IP programme penetrated to a greater target depth than
previously experienced but also covered a number of untested areas providing significant new
information to previous known geology/drilling results.
In summary, the 2013 IP programme has been successful in defining and refining exploration targets
with the following characteristics:

i. Large size: 7km long anomaly zone in central Bronze Fox (stretching from West Kasulu to
Leca Pass-Dunlop Fox), a 2km circular anomaly in northern area (across Sophie North and
Buchanan Heights) and a large conductive region with high chargeability and high gold rock
chip samples to the south (in the Happy Geo prospect). Refer to Figures 1 to 3 for further
details.
ii. Style: both “Oyu Tolgoi” long strike style and South American style circular
anomalies identified.
iii. High anomaly level readings.
iv. Lithogeochemcial and petrographic analysis, with other existing geological data, often
supports the geophysical results and targeted anomalies identified from the 2013 IP
programme.

Independent and internal interpretation of the 2013 “Search” system IP programme has highlighted
several as yet undrilled and/or insufficiently tested anomalies in the areas called Sophie
North/Buchanan Heights, Leca Pass, Dunlop Fox, Happy Geo with the main anomalies at West
Kasulu also untested. The majority of historic drill holes have not penetrated to the target depth of
the IP high priority targets. Broad lower grade mineralization, with localized areas of higher grade
(eg drill holes F62 & 72), generally near surface, reconcile to lower priority IP chargeability highs
with the main large-scale anomalies not yet drill tested. The most successful historical drill hole F62,
which intersected +800m of 0.4% CuEq (incl. 37m @ 1.07% CuEq), could indicate a large-scale
porphyry system but did not enter the nearest IP anomaly.
The 2013 IP results coupled with the success of similar IP programmes at Oyu Tolgoi and the
technical successes experienced by Kincora in late 2012, supports IP being an effective exploration
tool when integrated with proper geological information and interpretation. Results from the 2013
field season provide critical additional data and analysis to refine and prioritize target generation and
has explained, and also led to a reinterpretation of, a number of previous results.
Of particular note are preliminary IP results that have defined a classical circular chargeability high,
with a resistivity low almost in the core of the latter, at the Sophie North prospect. The geophysical
profile supports previous drilling results which returned anomalous copper and gold mineralization
near the IP target zone which coupled with an outcropping tonalite porphyry with unidirectional
solidification textures (USTs) just further south, supports that the upper mineralized parts of the
porphyry intrusions may have been preserved in a relatively unexplored area directly to the north of
the main drilling zone at the West Kasulu prospect.

Lithogeochemcial and Petrographic analysis
Following a recent site visit from Professor Tony Crawford various samples and lithogeochemcial
and petrographic analysis has been completed with final findings and recommendations being
positive.
A lithogeochemical fertility discrimination exercise has shown convincingly that the intrusive rocks
across the Bronze Fox Igneous Complex have fertile signatures, encouraging further exploration.
The presence of porphyry copper-style quartz-chalcopyrite veining over considerable depth intervals
experienced in late 2012 in at least the West Kasulu prospect supports the ‘fertile’ discrimination
outcome for Bronze Fox, and indicates that rocks further afield, for example Leca Pass and Sophie
North, share the same fertile signature and thus mineralization potential.
The encountered geochemical footprint matches other major porphyry deposits. Rocks sampled at
surface from close to the newly identified Sophie North IP anomaly often show well developed
porphyritic textures, rather than equigranular medium-grained textures such as those at West Kasulu,
suggesting this area may represent a higher level of the Bronze Fox Igneous Complex.

Internal integration and interpretation

Analysis and integration of various activities completed in the current field season and previous
work are ongoing, particularly given the ability to reconcile both recent and historical geophysical
analysis against existing drilling data and recent advancements in internal and independent
understanding and interpretation of geology. Key focus areas of continuing analysis include the
Sophie North prospect, a large conductive zone around the Happy Geo prospect with a discrete high
chargeability anomaly to the south of Happy Geo and further geophysical interpretation of anomalies
relative to previous drilling and alteration zone mineralogy at the West Kasulu and Leca Pass
prospects which have also identified further targets with are not yet drill tested.
The working model of the extensive hydrothermal copper activity encountered at Bronze Fox is
currently being integrated and refined with a focus on high priority follow up drill targets that offer
significant bulk tonnage potential, which are expected to be drill tested in the 2014 field season.

About Kincora Copper Limited
Kincora Copper Limited is a junior resource company engaged in the acquisition, exploration and
development of mineral properties with a focus on copper/gold projects in Mongolia.
Kincora’s ambition is to be the leading listed independent copper exploration and development
company in the highly prospective and proven Oyu Tolgoi South Gobi porphyry copper belt in
southeast Mongolia. The Company is exploring it’s wholly owned Bronze Fox project which hosts
an extremely large and strategically located mineralized footprint covering over 40km2 within a
223km2 licenses area. Analysis has confirmed a fertile arc for porphyry style deposits with extensive
lower grade copper-gold mineralization, with localized areas of higher grade, intersected in many
drill holes over the last three years, and localized higher grade, across a 7km strike (open).
Kincora recently completed one the most active copper exploration programmes in Mongolia during
2013, on one of the most advanced and prospective projects with one of the youngest exploration
licenses. Results of the Induced Polarization (“IP”) geophysical programme coupled with internal
and independent interpretation of geology and drilling results provides a number of high priority
large, potentially world-class size, copper-gold porphyry targets.
The Bronze Fox project is situated only 250km from the Chinese border and ~140km along Oyu
Tolgoi mineralization structural corridor and ~40km from Tsagaan Suvarga (with potential cross
cutting faulting). The immediate region is one of the most rapidly developing mining centres
anywhere in the globe despite being one of the last underexplored frontiers and a productive copper
porphyry belt.
Oyu Tolgoi (“OT”), has invested capital to date +US$7bn with current production of 100,000t/day
of ore ramping up to potentially 160,000t/day. Tsagaan Suvarga, with an estimated capex of US$1bn
and a target production of 40,000t/day, with OT, is one of two greenfield construction projects that
are expected to enter initial production within a 3-year construction period, a proximity unlikely to
be achieved within a comparable region anywhere else in the world in the near-medium term.
Porphyry deposits seldom occur in isolation with the South Gobi’s geology and tectonic setting
highly prospective for large size discoveries. With the long drilling intersections of copper and gold
mineralization across an extensive strike (and open), and locally with smaller higher copper grade in
the drill holes, the Bronze Fox project has emerged with bulk tonnage OT style porphyry potential.
The aim of the 2013 field season was to add value at the asset level while remaining comfortably
funded by both refining existing exploration data and specifying target generation of large scale,
potentially world-class size, porphyry copper-gold targets. Cash balance of C$1.65m (30th Sep’13)
supports at least minimum expenditure requirements for 2014. Efforts to recover Golden Grouse
licenses, Tourmaline Hills and North Fox, following recent revocation, as part of a total of 106
licenses, have commenced.
The Company is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange, was formed in mid 2011, with its head office
located in Vancouver, Canada, and a regional office in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
