July 8, 2022, Vancouver, BC – Amarc Resources Ltd. (“Amarc” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: AHR; OTCQB: AXREF) is pleased to announce that it has engaged Kin Communications Inc. (“Kin”) to assist with its investor relations activities.
Amarc President and CEO Diane Nicolson said, “With three copper-gold districts, each hosting a known porphyry copper deposit that is prime for moving toward development as well as multiple copper-gold deposit targets that are ready for drill discovery, we believe that Amarc is uniquely positioned to both provide copper to help fill the growing global copper supply gap and benefit from the opportunities from its exposure to gold.”
Amarc has partnered with foremost copper producer Freeport Mineral Properties Canada Inc. (“Freeport”) on the JOY Copper-Gold District, and our other Districts are also positioned for efficient, value-accretive programs and deals. Amarc has planned targeted programs for its DUKE and IKE Copper-Gold Districts and is working to establish funding to advance the development of both DUKE and IKE.
“As such, it is the right time to partner with a full-service IR firm like Kin, with an extensive network of investors to create a targeted communications program and broaden the reach of our message” added Nicolson. “Kin has a track record of enhancing communication and increasing the liquidity of the companies for which it provides services.”
Under the terms of the Investor Relations Agreement with Kin (the “Agreement”), Kin has agreed to assist Amarc with investor relations, including communicating with and marketing to potential investors, shareholders and media contacts for a period of twelve months and on a month-to-month basis thereafter. In consideration for the services, the Company has agreed to pay Kin $12,500 per month for the initial 12-month period. In addition, the Company has granted Kin stock options entitling it to purchase 1,000,000 of the Company’s common shares at a price of $0.11 per share with a five-year term, vesting in three instalments of 33%, 33% and 34%, with the first instalment vesting 90 days after the Effective Date of the Agreement. Kin is owned by President & CEO Arlen Hansen and has no direct relationship with the Company, other than as described in this news release.
The investor relations agreement with Kin and the grant of options thereunder is subject to regulatory approval.
