TORONTO, ONTARIO (January 11, 2012) -- Romios Gold Resources Inc. (TSX-V: RG) ("Romios" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed an option agreement with Mexivada Mining Corp. ("Mexivada") pursuant to which Mexivada can earn up to a 60% interest in the mining rights to the Company's Timmins Hislop property (the "Roger gold property") in Hislop Township in the Matheson gold camp, Ontario, Canada. Mexivada can earn a 50% interest in the property by expending $1,000,000 on exploration, paying $275,000 in cash option payments and issuing shares of Mexivada with a value of $275,000 over two years, with $25,000 in cash and $25,000 of Mexivada shares payable on receipt by Mexivada of approval by the TSX Venture Exchange ("Regulatory Approval"). Mexivada can earn a further 10% interest in the property by expending a further $1,000,000 on exploration before the third anniversary of the receipt of Regulatory Approval.
When Mexivada has earned either a 50% interest or a 60% interest in the Roger gold property, the parties will enter into a Joint Venture Agreement for the further exploration of the property. Romios retains the surface rights to the Roger gold property and will be entitled to rental payments for use of the surface rights unless Mexivada makes a further payment of $200,000, on the formation of the joint venture, to acquire its pro rata interest in the surface rights. The Joint Venture Agreement will provide for pro rata dilution for non-participation in programs. If either party is reduced below a 10% interest, such interest shall be converted into a 2% Net Smelter Returns Royalty ("NSR") and the other Party shall have the right to buy a 1% NSR for the sum of $1,000,000. The transaction is subject to regulatory approval by Mexivada.
