Baselode Energy Corp. (TSX-V: FIND) (OTCQB: BSENF) is pleased to announce the final geochemical assay results from a 22,500 metre diamond drill program completed between February and August on the ACKIO high-grade* uranium discovery, Hook project, Athabasca Basin area, northern Saskatchewan (see Table 1 and Figure 1).

 

“These final drill results continue to expand the scope of ACKIO. The results from drill hole AK22-066 indicate that we likely clipped the margin of another large mineralized zone to the west, similar to the results from AK22-063 (59.85 m of composite mineralization starting at 40.3 m true vertical depth, see news release dated September 12, 2022). This will be a drill priority target for early 2023.  ACKIO’s broad intersections have grades equal to or better than other uranium mining jurisdictions. ACKIO is near-surface, high-grade uranium mineralization with open pit mining potential in proximity to infrastructure and multiple licensed uranium mills,” said James Sykes, CEO, President and Director of Baselode.

  • AK22-066: 37.5 m of composite mineralization including
    • 0.14% U3O8 over 24.0 m at 107.5 m (107.1 m true vertical depth) includes 0.55% U3O8 over 0.5 m at 127.5 m and 0.64% U3O8 over 0.5 m at 129.0 m
  • AK22-075: 35.5 m of composite mineralization including
    • 0.12% U3O8 over 10.0 m at 107.5 m (105.9 m true vertical depth) includes 0.73% U3O8 over 0.5 m at 116.0 m
    • 0.15% U3O8 over 5.5 m at 131.5 m (129.5 m true vertical depth)

Baselode started the Program on February 9, 2022 (see Company News Release) and completed the Program on August 2, 2022, with 78 drill holes (AK22-005 to AK22-080, and HK22-007), including one abandoned drill hole (AK22-048), for a total of 22,485.85 m (see Figure 1). Fifty of seventy-six drill holes at ACKIO intersected uranium mineralization. A complete list of drill hole collar information, hand-held scintillometer radioactivity composite measurements, and U3O8 composite assay results for the nineteen drill holes reported in this news release are provided in Table 1.

 

Geochemical U3O8 assay results from drill holes AK22-012 to AK22-019, AK22-039 to AK22-041, AK22-064, AK22-066 and AK22-075 to AK22-080 were provided by Saskatchewan Research Council’s Geoanalytical Laboratory in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The assay methodology includes SRCs “U3O8 Wt% Assay” analysis package where an aliquot of sample pulp is digested in a concentration of HCL:HNO3. The digested volume is then made up with deionized water for analysis by ICP-OES. All of the uranium assay results from the Program have been reported, concluding with this news release.

 

NOTES:
1. All reported drill hole lengths do not represent true thicknesses which have yet to be determined.
2. * “High-grade uranium mineralization” is defined by the Company as any result with >0.50% U3O8 over a minimum of 0.25 m drill hole interval

 

The Company is preparing a presentation to provide more context to the full set of uranium assay results reported herein and from previous news releases.

About ACKIO

 

Mineralization starts as shallow as 28 m beneath the surface and down to approximately 300 m depth with the bulk of mineralization occurring in the upper 190 m. ACKIO measures greater than 375 m along strike, greater than 150 m wide, comprised of at least 5 separate zones, and remains open to the west, south, and along the Athabasca sandstone unconformity to the north, east and south.

 

ACKIO is 30 km southeast of well-established infrastructure, including an all-season road and powerline between Cameco Corp.’s (TSX: CCO) and Orano’s McArthur River mine and Key Lake uranium mill joint ventures. ACKIO is 70 km northeast of the Key Lake mill. The Program was helicopter-supported to lessen any ground-induced environmental impacts within the project area.

 

About Baselode Energy Corp.

 

Baselode controls 100% of approximately 227,000 hectares for exploration in the Athabasca Basin area, northern Saskatchewan, Canada. The land package is free of any option agreements or underlying royalties.

 

Baselode’s Athabasca 2.0 exploration thesis focuses on discovering near-surface, basement-hosted, high-grade uranium orebodies outside the Athabasca Basin. The exploration thesis is further complemented by the Company’s preferred use of innovative and well-understood geophysical methods to map deep structural controls to identify shallow targets for diamond drilling.
