Romios Acquires a 100% Interest in Newmont Lake Property

Romios Gold Resources Inc. (TSX-V:RG) ("Romios" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that further to its press release dated September 27, 2011, the Company has issued 4,282,655 common shares of the Company to Gulf International Minerals Ltd. ("Gulf") priced at $0.467 per share to acquire the remaining 25% interest in the Gulf Claims forming part of the Company's Newmont Lake Property. As a result, Romios now holds a 100% interest in the Gulf Claims subject to a 1.5% Net Smelter Returns Royalty (the "Gulf NSR") in favour of Gulf. The Company has the option to purchase 1/3 of the Gulf NSR for $1,000,000. The securities issued are legended and restricted from trading until February 15, 2012.

The Newmont Lake property contains a NI 43-101 inferred resource for the Northwest Zone of 1,406,000 tonnes at a grade of 4.43 gpt Au, 0.22% Cu and 6.4 gpt Ag or a gold equivalent grade (AuEq) of 5.16 gpt. This equates to in-situ contained metal of 200,000 ounces of gold, 6,790,000 pounds of copper and 291,000 ounces of silver. (Mineral Resources have not demonstrated economic viability and therefore are not Mineral Reserves) (See Press Release dated March 26, 2007)

In addition to the Northwest Zone, the Newmont Lake property contains numerous additional mineralized occurrences, including the Ken, North Grid, Glacier, Rope Jazzman and Boulder Zones. The Company intends to explore and further develop the Newmont Lake property which is located approximately 30 km northwest of Eskay Creek and approximately 30 km southeast of Galore Creek.

The qualified person responsible for the technical information included in this press release is Mel de Quadros, Ph.D., P.Eng, and a Director of the Company.
