  • AK22-065 intersected a total 81.0 metres of composite mineralization including 1,057 cps over 52.3 m , ranks as the second-best drill hole on the project
  • AK22-052 intersected 2,677 cps over 30.0 metres beginning 30.0 metres downhole, ranks as best drill hole on the project
  • Another near-surface zone has been discovered

 Baselode Energy Corp. (TSXV: FIND) (OTCQB: BSENF) (" Baselode " or the " Company ") is pleased to provide an update for the ongoing 20,000 metre diamond drilling program (the " Program ") on the ACKIO high-grade uranium discovery (" ACKIO "), Hook project (" Hook "), Athabasca Basin area (the " Basin "), northern Saskatchewan (see Figure 1 and Table 1 ).

"Four of these reported drill holes now rank amongst the top six in composite radioactivity results, as Baselode continues to expand upon its ACKIO near-surface discoveries. These results demonstrate high levels of radioactivity but also considerable widths of mineralization. Additionally, results from AK22-063 suggest that we've discovered another near-surface zone. The remainder of the drill program will seek to delineate the extent of these near-surface zones as they remain open in all directions. These discoveries are very shallow, with mineralization beginning 25 metres from surface at the overburden contact, similar to the open-pit mines in the Athabasca's history, most notably Rabbit Lake , Cluff Lake , and Uranium City operations," said James Sykes , CEO, President and Director of Baselode.

The Company has prepared a video presentation providing technical details and interpretations of the Program results. The video discusses:

  • Results and interpretations of the near-surface mineralization just beneath the overburden contact, including a new zone of mineralization defined in hole AK22-063
  • Hand-held scintillometer results do not reflect what's underground in AK22-065 (i.e., 20% lost core in mineralization)
  • Ongoing modelling and interpretation of ACKIO as a whole
  • Results of the drill fences to the southeast and their implications of mineralization

Drill hole highlights include;

  • AK22-052 : 2,677 cps over 30.0 m at 30.0 m (best individual continuous radioactivity intersection at ACKIO to date) which includes
    • 4,728 cps over 7.6 m at 31.2 m and a maximum of 12,000 cps over 0.2 m
  • AK22-065 : 81.0 m of composite mineralization comprised of 1,057 cps over 52.3 m at 63.8 m (3 rd best individual continuous radioactivity intersection) which includes
    • 2,488 cps over 12.75 m at 84.25 m and a maximum of 15,000 cps over 0.1 m
      And 745 cps over 14.75 m at 137.25 m which includes
    • 2,101 cps over 1.55 m at 145.1 m
      And 819 cps over 7.1 m at 167.5 m which includes
    • 3,139 cps over 0.9 m at 173.3 m and a maximum of 10,250 cps over 0.15 m
  • AK22-053 : 1,360 cps over 18.6 m at 137.4 m (fifth best individual continuous radioactivity intersection at ACKIO to date) which includes
    • 3,332 cps over 4.15 m at 145.75 m and a maximum of 8,000 cps over 0.1 m
  • AK22-063 : 52.3 m of composite mineralization comprised of 612 cps over 15.1 m at 53.7 m and 720 cps over 12.8 m at 80.85 m

Drill holes AK22-052 and AK22-053 were follow-up drill holes to AK22-051 which was the first drill hole off the drill pad (2,320 cps over 30.1 m at 27.0 m depth, see News Release dated May 31, 2022 ). Drilling to the north and west of the these drill holes have continued to grow near-surface mineralization in these directions. Drill holes are planned to follow-up the western and southern extents of near-surface mineralization previously identified in drill holes AK22-038 and AK22-041.

Since announcing the start of the Program on February 9, 2022 (see Company News Release), Baselode has completed 61 drill holes (AK22-005 to AK22-065) for 17,935.50 m (see Figure 1 ). Thirty-three of sixty-one drill holes have intersected continuously elevated radioactivity. A complete list of drill hole collar information and hand-held scintillometer radioactivity composite measurements for the drill holes reported in this news release (AK22-052 to AK22-065) are provided in Table 1 .

Samples from these reported fourteen drill holes have been submitted to the Saskatchewan Research Council's Geoanalytical Laboratory in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan , for whole-rock, multi-element and U 3 O 8 analysis. Uranium assay results will be released as they are received after being compiled and thoroughly checked by the technical team.

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 is helicopter-supported to lessen any ground-induced environmental impacts within the project area.

NOTES:


1.

cps* = "counts-per-second", as measured with a handheld RS-125 Gamma-Ray Spectrometer/Scintillometer. The reader is cautioned that Baselode uses scintillometer readings as a preliminary indication for the presence of radioactive materials (uranium, thorium and/or potassium), and that scintillometer results may not be used directly to quantify or qualify uranium concentrations of the rock samples measured.

2.

The Company considers all RS-125 readings greater than 300 cps to be considered elevated radioactivity, with background radioactivity measuring between 50 to 125 cps.

3.

"Continuous elevated radioactivity" means drill core length with no greater than 2.0 m of consecutive drill hole length measuring less than 300 cps.

4.

All reported drill hole depths and lengths do not represent true thicknesses which have yet to be determined.

5.

"best radioactive intersections" are determined by multiplying the average radioactivity with the reported intersection widths for each drill hole that Baselode has reported on to date.

6.

"best drill holes" are determined by the composite sum of each individual drill hole radioactive intersection as per 5.

Baselode Continues to Intersect Shallow Uranium Mineralization; Reports Ten New Drill Holes with Elevated Radioactivity

Baselode Continues to Intersect Shallow Uranium Mineralization; Reports Ten New Drill Holes with Elevated Radioactivity

  • Elevated radioactivity intersected in 10 new drill holes at ACKIO, including;
    • 1,687 cps over 26.9 m at 90.9 m in hole AK22-069
    • 875 cps over 27.7 m at 106.2 m in hole AK22-066
  • Nine drill holes intersected elevated radioactivity results within 100 m true vertical depth from surface
  • Regional exploration drill target intersected pentlandite (nickel) within massive sulphides in hole HK22-007
  • A total of 22,277.7 metres were completed in 76 drill holes at ACKIO high-grade uranium discovery

 Baselode Energy Corp. (TSXV: FIND) (OTCQB: BSENF) (" Baselode " or the " Company ") is pleased to announce the final sixteen drill hole results from the now-complete 2022 diamond drill program (the " Program ") on the ACKIO high-grade uranium discovery (" ACKIO "), Hook project (" Hook "), Athabasca Basin area (the " Basin "), northern Saskatchewan (see Figure 1 and Table 1 ).

"Our success at ACKIO this year has exceeded our expectations. We've grown ACKIO very quickly with over 22,000 metres having been drilled since February.  The final drill holes of the Program continued to intersect near-surface mineralization, expanding the footprint of known mineralization at shallow depths.  The discovery of uranium mineralization just 25 metres below surface puts ACKIO into a rare category with near-surface open pit mined Athabasca uranium deposits.  Our objective now is to incorporate all the data we have collected this year, including recently flown airborne geophysical surveys, to refine our geological models, to determine mineralized vectors at ACKIO, and to assess the required drill hole density for completing a mineral resource estimate for ACKIO.  Once complete we plan to return to ACKIO with an aggressive drill campaign to discover more uranium mineralization," said James Sykes , CEO, President and Director of Baselode.

Baselode Intersects Uranium 35.8 m Below Surface, One of the Shallowest Intersections in the History of the Athabasca Basin

Baselode Intersects Uranium 35.8 m Below Surface, One of the Shallowest Intersections in the History of the Athabasca Basin

  • One of the shallowest uranium intersections in the history of the Athabasca Basin
  • Supports the potential for open-pit mining on Baselode's ACKIO
  • AK22-038: 914 cps over 6.25 m at 35.85 m , including 2,057 cps over 1.75 m

 Baselode Energy Corp. (TSXV: FIND) (OTCQB: BSENF) (" Baselode " or the " Company ") is pleased to provide an interim update regarding elevated radioactivity intersected near-surface in drill hole AK22-038 as part of the Company's on-going 20,000 m drill program (the " Program ") on the ACKIO high-grade uranium discovery (" ACKIO "), Hook project (" Hook "), Athabasca Basin area (the " Basin "), northern Saskatchewan .

"This intersection is a game-changer for ACKIO as it opens up the prospect for open-pit mining. It also confirms our belief that mineralization occurs near-surface at ACKIO, and opens a new area for exploration to the west. This shallow intersection validates the possibility for unconformity style of mineralization and indicates that near-surface mineralization can occur throughout ACKIO. Other notable near-surface mineralization intersections include the Key Lake, Cluff Lake , Rabbit Lake , Collins Bay and Uranium City deposits, all of which have been mined with open-pit methodologies," said James Sykes , CEO, President and Director of Baselode.

Energy Fuels  - More signs that production is getting closer to ramping up

Energy Fuels - More signs that production is getting closer to ramping up

Energy Fuels reported 2022-2Q results in line with expectations, absent mark-to-market losses. The company reported a loss of $18.1 million or $0.11 per share. However, that included a $13.4 million negative mark to market of the value of investments. Absent that charge, adjusted net income would have been a loss of $4.7 million, or $0.03 per share, vs. our forecast for a loss of $8.6 million, or $0.06 per share. Vanadium and Rare Earth Element (RRE) sales are modest but poised to expand. The company sold 575,000 lbs. of vanadium, almost twice our forecast at an average price of $13.44/lb. Pricing has dropped so the company has discontinued sales. UUUU sold 205 tonnes of RRE, in line with expectations and pricing. Energy Fuels continues to make strides towards assuring RRE supply and developing circuits to separate heavy and light RRE at its White Mesa facilities. Read More >>
