Baselode Energy Corp. (TSXV: FIND) (OTCQB: BSENF) (“Baselode” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update to the ongoing 20,000 metre diamond drilling program (the “Program”) on the ACKIO high-grade uranium discovery (“ACKIO”), Hook project (“Hook”), Athabasca Basin area, northern Saskatchewan.
“ACKIO continues to grow in size and impress us with results. Both AK22-18 and AK22-19 demonstrate the robust size of the uranium-fertile fluid pathways that have penetrated the ACKIO area. We are convinced that our drill holes to date have intersected the distal damage zone along the edges of a major mineralized structure and that a larger deposition point exists along the trend. Our recent structural analysis of ACKIO is very compelling as it confirms numerous features previously identified with our geophysical surveys which could lead to the discovery of zones with higher levels of radioactivity and point us to targets for unconformity mineralization. We are excited to continue drilling the ACKIO mineralized trend and to test other prospective targets on the Hook Project,” said James Sykes, CEO, President and Director of Baselode.
