Petrographic and Age Determinations for Intrusives at Romios Gold's Newmont Lake Property Suggest Intrusives are Close in Age to Galore Creek Deposit

Romios Gold expands land holding by 412 units and plans further ground geophysical surveys, soil sampling and mapping

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 23, 2008) - Romios Gold Resources Inc. ("Romios" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:RG)(OTCBB:RMIOF)(FRANKFURT:D4R) announces that recently completed geochemistry, petrography, and age determination studies carried out for two intrusive phases at its RNT Zone, Newmont Lake property determined that the porphyry intrusives are very similar geochemically and mineralogically to the Mount Milligan Cu- Au porphyry and similar in age to Teck- Cominco/ Nova Gold's nearby alkalic Cu- Au Galore Creek deposit. Based on the findings of the study and known area geology, Romios Gold has expanded its land holdings by an additional 412 units covering an area of 78 square kilometers or 7,289 hectares and is planning further ground geophysics, soil sampling and mapping during its summer drilling program.

The studies were carried out by K.L. Rasmussen, PhD Candidate, Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences, University of British Columbia. Samples were taken from the RNT zone porphyritic intrusion and a porphyritic stock located four kilometers to the north. The RNT Zone is located approximately 1.5 Km east of the Newmont Fault.

Samples from the RNT Zone and the stock to the north had lithogeochemical compositions and textures that are typical of silica - saturated alkalic Cu- Au porphyry systems. The porphyritic dykes at the RNT zone have undergone an early high temperature "sodic" alteration event. The porphyritic stock has undergone similar styles of alteration, although less strongly. The pervasive sericitic alteration and secondary mineral assemblages found in the porphyry intrusives are indicative of proximity to the core of a silica-saturated porphyry system that is prospective for high grade chalcopyrite -bornite - gold mineralization.

Two samples of the porphyritic intrusions submitted for geochronological analysis returned late Triassic U-Pb ages of 203.1 to 214.1 Ma (million years), respectively. These ages are close to, or within the 210 -200 Ma timeframe in which most mineralized alkalic Cu-Au porphyry deposits in BC formed, including the approximately 210-215 Ma syn- mineralized intrusives at Teck-Cominco / Nova Gold deposit.

"We are very excited about the findings of the most recent studies and have significantly expanded our land holdings at our Newmont Lake property based on these results. We are starting our exploration program this month and will be targeting these highly prospective intrusives with further geophysical surveys and field work", said Tom Drivas, President.
