Participating in Red Cloud Securities Uranium Mini-Conference on May 13
TORONTO, May 11, 2021 /CNW/ -Baselode Energy Corp. (TSXV: FIND) (OTCQB: BSENF) ("Baselode" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the fixed-wing airborne gravity survey (the "Survey") has been completed over the Catharsis high-grade uranium exploration project (the "Project"), Athabasca Basin area ("Athabasca") in northern Saskatchewan.
"The Survey identified numerous gravity low features, any one of which could be indicative of clay alteration of basement rocks associated with uranium mineralization. Our preliminary interpretations have identified a large proportion of gravity low features that correlate with magnetic features of interest. This increases our confidence in our geological model and helps vector us towards potential basement-hosted uranium mineralization. We plan to follow-up the Survey with an electromagnetic survey to prioritize and define areas for planned ground work and diamond drilling," said James Sykes, CEO and President of Baselode.
About this Gravity Survey
The Falcon® Plus airborne gravity gradiometer, gravity and magnetics Survey covered the entire Project with 400 m flight line-spacing and was completed in 15 days. The Survey outlined numerous gravity low features commonly associated with hydrothermal alteration systems and uranium deposition. In addition, linear gravity low trends have been identified that correlate well with magnetic linear features interpreted as structural corridors (see Figure 1 for results and interpretations).
Immediate follow-up exploration plans for Catharsis include; i) an airborne VTEM survey required to further refine structural targets, anticipated to start in the next 2 to 3 weeks, ii) ground-truthing and reconnaissance, geologic mapping, and sampling to help prioritize planned diamond drill programs, anticipated to start in late Q2/early Q3, and iii) 2,500 metres of diamond drilling within priority target areas, anticipated to begin in late Q3. Baselode applied for ground exploration permits in April, and permits are expected to be received in June. The Company is actively engaged in the consultation process with Indigenous communities in the Project area.
A similar Survey has been completed over Baselode's Hook project (see News Release dated April 26, 2021), however, the results have yet to be interpreted. Baselode will provide an update of the results as they become available.

About Baselode Energy Corp.
Baselode currently controls 100% of approximately 171,000 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 is focused on discovering near-surface, basement-hosted, high-grade uranium orebodies outside of 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.
