Geikie Uranium Project Expansion

Basin Energy Limited (ASX:BSN) (‘Basin’ or the ‘Company’) is pleased to announce that two additional claims have been added to the Geikie Uranium Project (‘Geikie’ or the ‘Project’), consisting of 11.87km2 of land, bringing the total Geikie project area to 350.87km2. The newly staked claims are adjacent to the Preston Creek and Hourglass Lake prospects, where Basin’s maiden exploration drilling is underway (refer ASX Announcement – 13 June 2023).


Key Highlights

  • Additional claim areas added to the Geikie Uranium Project
    • Two claims for a total area of 11.87km2 added to the project area through claim staking, bringing the total Geikie project area to over 351km2
    • Claims are adjacent to current maiden exploration drilling program and contain continuations to the current drilling targets
  • Geotech contracted to expand existing Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic data coverage to include new claim area
  • Drilling is currently underway at Geikie with an initial 2,000 metres for 8 drill holes
The claims were acquired through staking via the Saskatchewan Government mineral claim process.

Basin has also commissioned Geotech Limited to provide helicopter-borne Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (‘VTEM’) data over the new claim areas. Survey equipment is already within the area so no mobilization fees will be incurred. This data will provide consistent coverage to the existing data set acquired in Q1 20231. The VTEM system is proven in this style of exploration for uranium within the Athabasca Basin and is excellent for locating discreet conductive anomalies as well as mapping lateral and vertical variations in resistivity.

Basin’s Managing Director, Pete Moorhouse, commented:

“With Maiden drilling currently underway at Geikie, we have secured the interpreted extensions to the current drill targets via the staking of these additional claims. We eagerly await the additional VTEM data, the results of which will be compiled with any available historic exploration data and the findings from our maiden drill program to formulate the next steps for Basin.
