TORONTO, ONTARIO, Jun 28, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) — Romios Gold Resources Inc. /quotes/zigman/170917 CA:RG +13.10% (frankfurt:D4R) (“Romios” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that a National Instrument (NI) 43-101 Technical Report has been completed for its Trek Property located in northern British Columbia. The report was completed by Pierre Desautels, P.Geo. of AGP Mining Consultants Inc. (“AGP”) of Barrie, Ontario. The entire report dated June 21, 2011 and titled “NI 43-101 Technical Report for the Trek Property Liard Mining District, British Columbia” can be viewed at www.sedar.com and at www.romios.com .
The current exploration program, which will total approximately $6.7 million, was recommended by Pierre Desautels of AGP in consultation with Scott Close, Exploration Manager at Romios. The program includes an 8,200 metre drill program on the Trek property’s North Zone designed to expand the pervasive porphyry-style copper and gold mineralization. It will also test the significant opportunities for added tonnage at the North Zone identified by previous drill campaigns and will target a large, deep conductor located below and adjacent to the previous drilling which was identified by the Titan24 geophysical surveys in 2010 (Press Release November 4, 2010). Drilling on Trek commenced in June. In addition, the program includes ground geophysical surveys consisting of 2.4 line kilometres and down-hole induced polarization (IP); resistivity (RES) and magnetics (MAG) surveys, and TEM loop geophysical surveys to further refine the exploration and infill drilling of the North Zone.
The program also includes four holes totalling 2,000 metres to be drilled to test for mineralization at Trek’s Tangle Zone, where a deep conductive anomaly, identified during the 2010 Quantec Titan 24 geophysical survey, is the main drill target. The anomaly correlates well with grab sample assays and a significant soil copper-gold geochemical anomaly. Previous grab samples assayed up to 9.6 g/t Au, and 16.45% Cu with 7.56 g/t Au. Soil sampling in the area assayed up to 5.31 g/t Au and 12.2% Cu (Press Release dated November 4, 2010).
The Trek property, 100% owned by Romios, consists of 10 land tenures which cover 4096.869 hectares (10123.58 acres) in the Galore Creek Area which encompasses GCMC’s (NovaGold and Teck Resources) Galore Creek Project that contains a large, undeveloped, porphyry-related, copper- gold-silver deposit. Since acquiring the Trek property in 2006, Romios has been carrying out exploration programs to evaluate the widespread zones of breccia-hosted copper-gold mineralization and zones of porphyry-style gold-copper mineralization on the property.
The information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Pierre Desautels, P.Geo, a Qualified Person in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements as set out in NI 43-101.
