Northwest Power Line Environmental Assessment Certificate Approval

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 2, 2011) - Romios Gold Resources Inc. ("Romios" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RG)(OTCBB:RMIOF)(FRANKFURT:D4R) is pleased and encouraged by the recent announcement by Environment Minister Murray Coell in conjunction with Forests, Mines and Lands Minister Pat Bell to grant British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority (BC Hydro) the environmental assessment certificate for the proposed Northwest Transmission Line. The decision to grant the certificate occurred after considering the review of the project led by B.C's Environmental Assessment Office (EAO).

The project includes a new 287 kilovolt transmission line which covers 344 kilometres from the existing Skeena substation south of Terrace to a new substation near Bob Quinn Lake. The proposed $404 million project includes new access roads, upgrades to the Skeena substation and the construction of a new Bob Quinn substation.

"The new transmission line will be instrumental in advancing infrastructure to the Golden Triangle area of northwestern British Columbia. This will serve to advance the many mining projects in the area, including the Trek, Newmont Lake and other Galore Creek area projects currently being explored by Romios," indicated Tom Drivas, President and CEO.
