*Note: Length in metres may vary from hole length because some holes intersected the old mine workings. All intervals in this Press Release are core lengths and not necessarily true widths. 

The property is located in northwestern Quebec, approximately 30 kms. from the town of Val d'Or and is the site of the former La Corne molybdenum mine which, according to previous operators, is reported to have produced 3,838,844 tons of ore at a head grade of 0.33% MoS2 and 0.040% bismuth prior to its closure in 1972. The earlier mining efforts were directed towards developing only the narrow veins on the property. Romios is currently evaluating the potential of a significant tonnage of lower grade material that may be amenable to open pit mining. 

The mineralization occurs in a complex of veins within a large granite intrusive. The intrusive is about 1,000 metres (3,280 feet) long and in the upper levels of the La Corne mine measures approximately 429 metres (1,397 feet) wide , narrowing to about 350 metres (1,148 feet) at a depth of 228 metres (750 feet) in the mine. 

The 2008 drill program consisted of 19 diamond holes totaling 5,738 metres (18,825 feet) drilled both on the claims map-staked by Romios Gold and on the Mining Concessions acquired under an option agreement described in an earlier Press Release issued on February 5, 2009. As can be seen from the preceding chart, the drilling intersected molybdenum, bismuth, silver and lithium mineralization over long intervals starting from bedrock near the surface.

Tom Drivas, President of Romios, stated: "We are pleased with these initial drilling results because they corroborate the historical mine records that indicate that the vein complexes are extensive. Romios is currently focused on the open pit potential of the property, and we are pleased that these drilling results compare well with the grades at other bulk tonnage molybdenum deposits."

As detailed in its Press Release dated February 5, 2009, Romios can earn a 100 % interest in the property subject to a 3% Net Smelter Return (NSR) retained by the vendors, of which half(1.5%) can be repurchased for $500,000.

The technical information contained in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Thomas Skimming, P. Eng., Geologist, V.P. of Exploration, Director of Romios Gold Resources Inc. and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
