Romios Announces Initial Results of 2010 Drill Program at the Trek Property in the Galore Creek Area
Including 4.03% Cu, 1.71 g/t Au and 8.85 g/t Ag over 4.6 metres (15.0 feet), within a 43.3 metres (142.0 feet) Intersection of 0.88% Cu, 0.34 g/t Au and 2.21 g/t Ag
TORONTO, ONTARIO, Sep 13, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) — The management of Romios Gold Resources Inc. (“Romios” or “the Company”) (CA:RG 0.16, 0.00, 0.00%) (RMIOF 0.15, +0.00, +0.27%) (FRANKFURT: D4R) is pleased to announce the initial results of the diamond drill program carried out during the summer of 2010 on its Trek property in the Galore Creek Area in northwestern British Columbia. Eight holes totaling 3,975.4 metres (13,042 feet) were drilled at the North Zone. Assay results received to date for holes TRK10-01, TRK10-02 and TRK10-03, confirm the extension of the copper-gold mineralization at depth and to the northeast by at least 350 metres from earlier findings.
The Trek property, which is located adjacent to both the proposed Galore Creek mine and mill site, hosts a large and growing mineralized zone.
Highlights of the assays received to date include drill hole TRK10-03, which was drilled to a length of 591 metres (1,939 feet), is located approximately 160 metres (520 feet) south of hole TRK10-02 and 240 metres (780 feet) northeast from hole TRK10-01. TRK10-03, which was drilled with a southerly bearing, was designed to test the mineralization along the trend from the North to the Northeast Zones and between holes TRK10-01 and TRK10-02. Hole TRK10-03 intersected an upper zone of disseminated and vein-hosted copper mineralization 117 metres (383.8 feet) in length assaying 0.47% copper, 0.18 g/t gold, and 1.40 g/t silver. This interval includes a section of 65.1 metres (213.5 feet) which assayed 0.62% copper, 0.24 g/t gold and 1.64 g/t silver (within which a section of 4.6 metres (15.0 feet) averaged 4.03% copper, 1.71 g/t gold and 8.85 g/t silver). A lower zone in hole TRK10-03 intersected 8.6 metres (28.2 feet) in length which assayed 0.19% copper, 0.20 g/t gold, and 3.04 g/t silver. Collectively, the rocks containing the upper and lower zone intersections and adjacent mineralization, comprise a total intersection of 294 metres (964.3 feet) in length assaying 0.25% copper, 0.11 g/t gold and 0.93 g/t silver.

As a matter of procedure, the mineralized intervals of drill core are split in the field using an electric-powered core saw and bagged using security seals. The samples are then delivered to ALS Chemex Laboratories in Vancouver for analysis. In addition to the laboratory’s quality control program, a rigorous on-site quality assurance and quality control program is implemented which involves the insertion of blanks, standards and splits to ensure reliable assay results.
To date, breccia and porphyry-type copper-gold mineralization have been intersected on the North Zone over an area measuring approximately 700 metres (2,296 feet) by 550 metres (1,804 feet) and to a depth of 450 metres (1,476 feet).
Tom Drivas, President of Romios commented, “We are very pleased with the assay results received to date. The drilling continues to expand the mineralized zones intersected in our earlier holes and provides further evidence of the widespread and pervasive nature of the copper and gold mineralization on the North Zone. The drilling results encountered on the North Zone are comparable to other large tonnage copper-gold porphyry deposits in British Columbia and substantiate the exploration potential for Trek to become a viable copper-gold porphyry deposit.”
Assays for the remaining five holes will be reported once they have been received and reviewed by the Company. In addition, results from the recently completed Titan 24 Survey and sampling on the Dirk property will also be released when they have been received and analyzed by the Company.
