Romarco Intercepts Vein Target at its Pinos Gold Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 5, 2007) - ROMARCO MINERALS INC. (TSX VENTURE:R) announces that it has completed nearly half of the previously announced drill program (see press release dated January 16, 2007) at the Pinos Gold Project, in Zacatecas Mexico.

Romarco is currently drilling the fifth hole of a planned 11 hole program (approximately 1,290 meters of the 3,000 meter program). This program is designed to establish continuity of the vein system below the historic workings which went to a depth of approximately 100 meters.

To date, every hole has intercepted vein or stockwork veining intervals. Veining appears to continue to at least 200 meters below the historic workings.

Samples taken from the vein and stockwork veining are pending assay analysis by Chemex ALS of Vancouver.

The Phase I sampling and drilling programs are focused on the northern portion of the property known as Catanava - this is the least explored area of the property and represents only 4% of the Romarco's land package. The Catanava area is a 50/50 joint venture with Minera Apolo.

Romarco has contracted with R&R Incorporated Servicios de Perforacion Insemin S.A. de C.V., a drilling company based in Hermosillo, Sonora,Mexico.

Tommy Thompson, VP Exploration, is Romarco's Qualified Person on the project.
