Individual Chip Samples Yield up to 7.04 % Copper, 0.093 g/t Gold and 36.9 g/t Silver Over 1.0 Metres
Romios Gold reports that the average grade of 48 samples from a mineralized breccia swarm measuring 250 metres by 50 metres ( 820 ft. by 164 ft.) and exposed in a cliff face at its Trek property was 1.39 % copper, 0.49 g/t gold and 7.85 g/t silver. A chip sample from the area assayed 7.04 % copper , 0.093 g/t gold and 36.9 g/t silver over 1m (3.28 ft.). The exposed area of the mineralized breccia swarm measures approximately 250 metres (820 ft.) in the horizontal dimension and 50 metres (164 ft.) in the vertical dimension. The lower portion of the exposed area is covered by a talus slope. Pictures of the exposed breccia zone can be viewed on Romios Gold's web site (www.Romios.com) - see Trek property - Photo Gallery. The breccia pipes are well mineralized with primary chalcopyrite and pyrite mineralization seen as coarse, clotty matrix fill and outcrops are heavily coated with secondary malachite and azurite staining.
Following the sampling program, a diamond drilling program was initiated to further test the exposed mineralization. The diamond drill program, consisting of six holes, as reported in Romios Gold's Press Release dated Sept 3, 2008, produced positive results with hole TRK -08-01 cutting a well mineralized 32 metre (105 ft.) interval of the breccia zone contained within a 131 metre (431 ft.) interval of disseminated mineralization. Disseminated mineralization was also intersected in the remaining holes and assay results are pending.
Sampling results are detailed in Table 1 below.

The Trek property is a block containing 4,297 hectares (10,618 acres) within the claim boundary of the Nova Gold/ Teck Cominco's Galore Creek property. It is located approximately 8.5 kilometres (5.28 miles) southeast of the Galore Creek deposit and 4.5 kilometres (2.79 miles) south of the Copper Canyon deposit. For the location of the Trek Property, see the property map in Romios' website: www.romios.com. The breccia swarm is also located adjacent to the partially completed access road to the Galore Creek deposit constructed by Teck/ Cominco - NovaGold. - see photos on Romios Gold's website in the photo section for the Trek property. Romios is presently earning a 100% interest in the Trek Property, subject to a 2% Net Smelter Returns Royalty.
Tom Drivas, President stated "We are very excited by these early surface sampling results from this strongly mineralized breccia zone. Several breccia pipes are exposed in the cliff face at the Trek property, and we have also intersected the zone over significant intervals in our other drilling. These very promising early results point to the high potential of this property and bode well for continued exploration of the property."
All samples submitted by Romios to the laboratory of ALS Chemex were analyzed for copper, gold and silver by ICP analysis. The samples were hand delivered to ALS Chemex Laboratories in Terrace, British Columbia for preparation and then shipped to Vancouver for analysis. In addition to the laboratory's quality control program, a rigorous on- site quality assurance and quality control program was implemented involving the insertion of blanks, standards and splits.
