TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 12, 2011) - The management of Romios Gold Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RG)(OTCBB:RMIOF)(FRANKFURT:D4R) is pleased to acknowledge the approval of the Northwest Transmission Line power project by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency of the Federal Government. This approval moves the project forward after the recent granting of an environmental certificate by the Provincial Environmental Assessment Office in February as outlined in our press release of March 2, 2011.

"This announcement continues to move the project toward the construction phase which will enhance the infrastructure for the development of the Golden Triangle of North-western British Columbia.
