Key Highlights:

  • Contractors secured for maiden drilling program at Geikie with mobilisation set to commence in early June
  • Initial 2,000 metres planned for a minimum of 8 drill holes

  • Targets defined using high resolution airborne radiometric and electromagnetic surveys in combination with geochemical sampling, structural mapping & historical data review
  • Basin remains fully funded for a significant 2023 exploration program with $7.3M at 31 March 2023

Basin Energy Limited (ASX:BSN) (‘Basin’ or the ‘Company’) is pleased to provide an update on exploration activities at the Geikie Uranium Project (‘Geikie’ or the ‘Project’), located on the eastern margin of the world-class Athabasca Basin. 

The Company has secured contractors and crews with mobilisation set to commence in the second week of June for an initial 2,000 metre diamond drilling program designed to test features associated with a regionally significant conductor deemed favorable to host shallow, high grade uranium mineralisation. This initial program will consist of a minimum of 8 drill holes, with proposed depths up to 250 metres. 

Basin’s Managing Director, Pete Moorhouse, commented:

“This is a significant milestone for Basin, being the initial phase of the first exploration drilling to be completed by the Company and representing the start of an exciting 2023 summer field season.

Our efforts to date have generated a compelling pipeline of regionally significant drill ready uranium targets at shallow depths. As this drilling commences, Basin continues to develop the secondary targets identified at Geikie, whilst bolstering is North Millennium and Marshall targeting criteria.

We are seeing a very positive sentiment in the uranium space emerging, and Basin is extremely well positioned to capitalise on this through the exploration of its projects in the world-class Athabasca Basin. We look forward to providing further updates as the season develops.”

About us:

Basin Energy (ASX: BSN) is a uranium exploration and development company with an interest in three highly prospective projects positioned in the southeast corner and margins of the world-renowned Athabasca Basin in Canada.
