Romios Options Trek and Royce/Porc Properties in the Galore Creek Area, Northwestern British Columbia

TORONTO, ONTARIO - April 27, 2006 - Romios Gold Resources Inc. ("Romios") (TSX VENTURE:RG) is pleased to announce that it has entered into option agreements with the Galore Creek Syndicate of Vancouver, British Columbia to earn a 100% interest in each of the Trek Property and the Royce/Porc Property. Romios also has a right of first refusal to option the "JW Property". These properties (Trek, Royce/Porc and JW properties) may encompass gold-copper porphyry systems thought to be the same age as the Galore Creek intrusions which host the Galore Creek and Copper Canyon porphyry deposits.

Romios can earn a 100% interest in the Trek Property, subject to a 2% Net Smelter Returns Royalty in favour of the optionors, by paying a total of $115,000 in cash option payments, issuing a total of 500,000 common shares and expending an aggregate of $2,000,000 on the Trek Property over four years. Romios must pay $15,000 and issue 50,000 common shares on closing and spend $150,000 in the first year on the Trek Property. Romios can earn a 100% interest in the Royce/Porc Property, subject to a 2% Net Smelter Returns Royalty in favour of the optionors, by paying a total of $110,000 in cash option payments, issuing a total of 500,000 common shares and expending an aggregate of $1,000,000 on the Royce/ Porc Property over four years. Romios must pay $10,000 and issue 50,000 common shares on closing and spend $75,000 in the first year on the Royce/Porc Property. Romios can option the JW Property on the same terms as the Trek Property.

The transactions set out herein are subject to approval from the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Trek Property consists of 5 land tenures which cover 2,693.27 hectares of land (approximately 26 square kilometers) in the Liard Mining Division. The property is located in the Galore Creek area of northwestern British Columbia and lies within the large parcel of land which houses NovaGold Resources' Galore Creek Project (13.75 million ounces of gold, 156 million ounces of silver and 12 billion pounds of copper as per the NovaGold website). The Trek Property expands upon property previously staked by Romios which is bordered on three sides by NovaGold ground and also encompasses two prospective NovaGold claim blocks namely, the five Sphal claims and two Kim claims.

During the period 1988 to 1990, grid-based geochemical and geophysical surveys, geological mapping and basic prospecting resulted in the discovery of a number of potentially important copper-gold occurrences on the Trek Property, identified as the Grey, Heel, West and Gully Zones. Grab samples collected across a width of 1.8 meters on the Grey Zone assayed 4.2% copper and 1.13 grams per tonne gold. A second sample across a width of 1.5 meters assayed 4.9% copper and 1.34 grams per tonne gold. A grab sample collected across a 5 meter width at the Heel zone assayed 1.1% copper, 7.6 grams per tonne gold and 117.0 grams per tonne silver. The West Zone occurs in very close proximity to NovaGold's Sphal Claims but extends onto the Trek Property where a single sample collected across 1.5 meters assayed 3.0% copper and 5.83 grams per tonne gold.

The only drilling carried out on the Trek Property was in 1993 when Warner Ventures Ltd. drilled 6 short holes into the Gully zone, a semi-massive sulphide shear vein system. Two of these holes intersected significant gold-copper mineralization but the lack of funds at the time prevented Warner from carrying out further drilling to evaluate the significance of this mineralization. Hole TRK93-1 intersected 10.4 meters grading 1.49% copper and 1.5 grams per tonne in gold and Hole TRK-93-4 intersected 6.0 meters grading 1.26% copper and 3.1 grams per tonne in gold. Surface chip samples of massive pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite across a true width of 3.6 meters from the surface exposure of the Gully Zone assayed 5.31% copper and 8.77 grams per tonne gold. No further work has been carried out on the Trek Property since 1993.

The intersections and grades referred to above have been derived from reports provided to Romios by the Galore Greek Syndicate. A qualified person has not confirmed any of the results referred to above and the assay results may not be in compliance with NI 43-101. The data is relevant to the property interest being acquired by Romios but may not be reliable.

The Royce/Porc Property is located within the NovaGold claims and consists of 2 land tenures which cover 1,320.613 hectares of land (approximately 13 square kilometers) also in the Galore Creek area of the Liard Mining Division. In 1989, Royce Industries Inc. acquired operation of the PL 7 to 11 claims and carried out property-wide mapping and prospecting. Gold mineralization was discovered in three zones, namely North Creek, Split Ridge and Split Creek canyon. The PL 12 and 13 claims were staked by the joint partners in February, 1990 to cover the drainages that yielded anomalous samples on the north side of North Creek and the projected trend of gold-zinc mineralization northwest of Split Creek canyon. During the 1990 field season, Royce Industries Inc. extended geological and geochemical coverage and evaluated the known showings. The results of this work enhanced the Split Ridge showings. Hand trenching discovered lode gold mineralization at the "JEFE" zone on Split Ridge and a float sample containing 769.2 grams per tonne gold was discovered 400 meters north of the Jefe zone that led to the recognition of the "ROLLS ROYCE" zone.

The analytical results of detailed litho-geochemical sampling at the Jefe zone extended the gold mineralization southerly for approximately 70 meters. The highest gold values, such as those returned from samples 9103-38 (13.10 gpt or 0.382 opt gold in trench number Tr91-100) and 9103-42 (10.23 gpt or 0.298 opt gold in trench Tr 91-06) are associated with sulphide-rich quartz veining with gold values generally diminishing with the vein widths. High gold values correlate with elevated values of copper, zinc, silver and arsenic. Lead values are erratic and antimony values are consistently low.

The intersections and grades referred to above have been derived from reports provided to Romios by the Galore Greek Syndicate. A qualified person has not confirmed any of the results referred to above and the assay results may not be in compliance with NI 43-101. The data is relevant to the property interest being acquired by Romios but may not be reliable.

In addition, the Company has a right of first refusal to option the JW Property which lies to the northwest of NovaGold's Galore Creek Project and is completely within the NovaGold ground. 

Romios intends to carry out a combined, helicopter-borne magnetic and electromagnetic survey during the forthcoming field season followed by a detailed ground exploration program to assess the significance of the known copper-gold occurrences on the properties and to evaluate any geophysical anomalies identified in the airborne survey.

For the purposes of the disclosure in this press release, Garth Kirkham, P.Geoph., a director of the Company, is the Qualified Person ("QP") in accordance with NI 43-101.
