Baselode Reports Additional High-Grade Uranium Intersections from ACKIO Discovery

January 6, 2022

Toronto, Ontario – January 06, 2021 – Baselode Energy Corp. (TSXV: FIND, OTCQB: BSENF) ("Baselode" or the "Company") is pleased to report the final Uranium assay results from the recently completed diamond drill program on the ACKIO Uranium discovery (“ACKIO”), Hook project (“Hook”), Athabasca Basin area, northern Saskatchewan.

Highlights include:

1) A second drill hole confirms high-grade* Uranium at ACKIO; 0.67 wt% U3O8 over 0.5 m at 131.6 m in AK21-03

2) Elevated uranium concentrations of 0.24 wt% U3O8 over 5.5 m at 128.6 m in AK21-03 and 0.24 wt% U3O8 over 2.0 m at 99.0 m in AK21-04

3) Multiple Uranium intersections occurring within 200 m of the surface

“We are very encouraged by intersecting near-surface, high-grade Uranium mineralization in two drill holes from our first drill program at the ACKIO discovery.  The Uranium results from drill holes AK21-01, AK21-03 and AK21-04 demonstrate that ACKIO is part of a robust and fertile Uranium system, with multiple Uranium occurrences intersected throughout the drill hole lengths.  Our main Uranium intersections from drill holes AK21-01 through AK21-04 occur between 90 and 125 m below surface and cover a lateral distance measuring approximately 45 m.  Our follow-up drill program is only weeks away and we’re excited to see what we’ll be able to uncover,” said James Sykes, CEO, President and Director of Baselode. 

The Company has prepared a quick video presentation for shareholders and the public to learn more about these Uranium results (see link below).  Additional video presentations will be released in the coming days and weeks to provide details regarding the interpretation of massive alteration halo, the structures observed at ACKIO, and other topics of interest relating to ACKIO and Hook. Complete Ackio drill results are published in Table 1, along with a cross-section in Figure 1 below.

NOTES:

         *       Baselode considers “high-grade” to be uranium mineralization with a concentration greater than 0.5 wt% U3O8
