Romios Announces Continued Expansion of Mineralization at its Dirk Property in British Columbia, including a chip sample with 1.23% Cu, 1.00 g/t Au and 12.88 g/t Ag over 3 metres.

The management of Romios Gold Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Romios Gold") is pleased to announce assay results from chip sampling at its 100% owned Dirk property in the Galore Creek area in northwestern British Columbia. The chip sampling and prospecting on the Dirk claims was undertaken during 2010 to follow up on the results of the rock geochemical sampling conducted in the 2009 exploration program. The three principal mineral showings at the Dirk property are the Dirk, Telena, and the newly-discovered Ridge showings.

Below are highlights of the results of the mineral showings:

Though isolated from the Dirk and Telena showings by snow and overburden, the Ridge showing exhibits similar characteristics to the Telena and Dirk, indicating the three showings are related and form an inter-connected system of copper-gold mineralization. Eight grab samples from skarns and intrusions forming a ridgeline 7.0 metres wide and 30 metres long included 3.49% Cu and 0.28 g/t Au; 2.47% Cu and 0.19 g/t Au; 1.83% Cu and 0.38 g/t Au and 1.83% Cu and 0.49 g/t Au

One 3.0 metre long continuous set of chip samples averaged 1.23% Cu, 1.00 g/t Au and 12.88 g/t Ag; and one 4.0 metre long continuous set of chip samples averaged 0.44% Cu, 0.35 g/t Au, and 5.2 g/t Ag. Chip sample assays from the 2010 season ranged from 0.01 to 1.96% Cu, and 0.01 to 1.27 g/t Au. This chip sampling followed up on a grab sample taken in 2009 (2.07% Cu, 0.97 g/t Au, and 6.9 g/t Ag), thirty-two 1.0 metre long chip samples and two additional grab samples. 

Samples assayed up to 2.6 g/t Au from outcrop, and 6.21% Cu, 0.577 g/t Au, and 44.1 g/t Ag from a 3.0 metre long chip sample. Concentrated and high-grade gold and copper mineralization at the Dirk property was discovered in 2009, during a property-wide reconnaissance program designed to investigate the original historic Dirk mineral showing dating from 1973. 

During the field work in 2010, Romios geologists conducted additional sampling at the Telena showing, and discovered and sampled the Ridge showing. The program focused on connecting the mineralization between these three showings, and identified three drill sites designed to intersect and explore the exposed mineralization at depth. Romios Gold intends to drill these sites with its next drill program this summer. The presence of high-grade mineralized surface exposures, spanning 300 metres in elevation for 2.4 kilometres horizontally indicates the potential for rapid exploration growth in a developing mineral district.

The Dirk property is 6.0 km northwest of the Company's Newmont Lake property. Mineralization on the Dirk claims is comprised of veinlets and stringers of bornite, digenite, and trace chalcopyrite within carbonates, mineralized breccias and related orthoclase megacrystic syenite intrusions, similar to those at the Galore Creek and Mt. Polley deposits. .
