Romios Intersects 2.06% Copper, 1.05 GPT Gold and 26.01 GPT Silver Over 32.0 Metres (105 ft.) in Discovery Hole at its Trek Property

 

Higher Grade Breccia Mineralization Contained Within 131.4 Metre (431 ft.) Zone Grading 0.61% Copper, 0.39 g/t Gold and 8.47 g/t Silver. 
 

Romios Gold Resources Inc. (TSX- V: RG). today announced the results of hole TRK 08-01 recently completed at its Trek property located in the Galore Creek area of northwestern British Columbia. The hole was drilled at minus 70 degrees to a depth of 196.6 metres (645 feet ) and was designed to test a mineralized breccia zone exposed in a cliff face located 110 metres( 361 feet) west of the drill hole. TRK 08-01 cut a higher grade breccia zone from 147.5 metres to 179.5 metres downhole (32.0 metres or 105 ft.) that assayed 2.06 % copper, 1.05 g/t gold and 26.01 g/t silver. The breccia zone was contained within a mineralized interval from 65.2 metres to 196.6 metres, (131.4 metres or 431 ft. in the hole), that had a weighted average grade of 0.61 % copper, 0.39 g/t gold and 8.48 g/t silver. 

Sampling results of the breccia zone exposed in the cliff face averaged 1.22% copper, 0.68 g/t gold and 8.66 g/t silver over a mineralized area measuring 62 metres by 20 metres (203.4 ft. by 65.6 ft.). The results were reported in Romios Gold's Press Release dated October 2, 2008. Pictures of the exposed breccia swarm are available for viewing on Romios Gold's web site (www.romiosgold.com) -- see Trek property -- Photo Gallery. The Trek property is a block containing 4,297 hectares(10,618 acres) within the claim boundary of Nova Gold/Teck Cominco's Galore Creek property. It is located approximately 8.5 kilometres south- east of the Galore Creek deposit and 4.5 kilometres south of the Copper Canyon Resources Ltd. deposit. For the location of the Trek property, see the property map on Romios Gold's web site. 

The following chart outlines the detailed information related to the sampling and analysis of the drill core from diamond drill hole TRK 08-01. All intervals reported in this Press Release are core lengths and not true widths.

Tom Drivas, President of Romios Gold stated "The wide intersection of these high grade copper, gold and silver values in Hole TRK 08-01 indicates the significant potential of this discovery. As reported in Romios Gold's Press Releases of September 3, 2008, we have also intersected the mineralized zone over wide intervals in our other drilling at Trek, which further indicates the potential of the mineralized zones. We are awaiting assay results from the additional holes." 

Romios has an option from the Galore Creek syndicate to earn a 100 % interest in the Trek property, subject to a 2% Net Smelter Returns Royalty in favour of the optionors. 

All drill core samples submitted by Romios to the ALS Chemex laboratory were analyzed for copper, gold and silver by ICP analysis. The mineralized core intervals from NQ diameter core were split in the field using an electric- powered core saw and then 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.
