TORONTO, ONTARIO (July 29, 2011) -- Romios Gold Resources Inc. (TSX-V: RG) ("Romios" or the "Company") is delighted by the results of a Prefeasibility Study released today by NovaGold Resources Inc. relating to the Galore Creek copper-gold-silver project in northwestern British Columbia. The project is owned equally under a partnership agreement between NovaGold Resources Inc. (NovaGold) and Teck Resources Limited (Teck) and managed by the Galore Creek Mining Corporation. According to NovaGold's press release, the Prefeasibility Study confirms the technical and economic viability of the Galore Creek project. In addition, the NovaGold press release stated that the partners (NovaGold and Teck) have determined to move forward with an enhanced project plan which is required for permitting and support for a feasibility decision.
This development is of particular interest to Romios since the Company's Trek property is located adjacent to both the Galore Creek project mine site and the proposed mill site. Currently, Romios' Trek property is the focus of a major exploration program with three diamond drills presently in operation. Systematic surface sampling and geological mapping is also being carried out to follow up a number of anomalies identified in recent ground and airborne geophysical surveys. Additionally, Romios has several other properties in the Galore Creek area, including its Dirk and Newmont Lake properties, upon which exploration activities are in progress.
To date, over 3,300 metres of diamond drilling has been completed and extensive ground and airborne geophysical surveys have been carried out. Analytical results of the drill core will be released as soon as they are available.
