Etymologies

from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 4th Edition

[Middle English, way, load, from Old English lād, way; see leit- in Indo-European roots.]

from Wiktionary, Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License

Etymologically identical with load, which has however become semantically restricted. The now-archaic lode continues the old sense of Old English lád "way, course, journey" but by the 19th century survived only dialectally in the sense of "watercourse", as a technical term in mining, and in the compounds lodestone, lodestar.
