Romios Earns Interest in Newmont Lake Property

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 13, 2007) - Romios Gold Resources Inc (TSX VENTURE:RG)(OTCBB:RMIOF)(FRANKFURT:D4R)("Romios" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has earned its 50% interest in the Gulf Claims forming part of the Company's Newmont Lake Property and has advised Gulf International Minerals Ltd. that it will exercise its option to earn an additional 25% interest in consideration for the payment of up to $1,000,000 in cash and/or shares of Romios on or before January 31, 2008. Following the payment, Romios will hold a 75% working interest in the Gulf Claims.

The parties entered into an Amending Agreement pursuant to which Romios has been granted the option to earn a further 25% interest in the property (for a total of a 100% interest) for a period of 30 months from the date Romios earns its 75% interest in the property by paying to Gulf an additional $2,000,000 in cash and/or shares of Romios and granting to Gulf a 1.5% net smelter return royalty in the property. Romios will have the right to purchase a 0.5% net smelter return royalty from Gulf for the payment of $1,000,000. If Romios does not exercise the final option, then the parties will form a joint venture with Romios having a 75% participating interest and Gulf having a 25% participating interest in the joint venture.

The Company previously reported an inferred resource on the NW Zone at the Company's Newmont Lake Property of 1,406,000 tonnes at a grade of 4.43 gpt Au, 0.22% Cu and 6.4 gpt Ag or a gold equivalent grade (AuEq) of 5.16 gpt. This equates to in-situ contained metal of 200,000 ounces of gold, 6,790,000 pounds of copper and 291,000 ounces of silver. These resources are reported at a base case gold equivalent cut-off grade of 2 gpt (see Press Release dated March 26, 2007).

Romios Management believes that the suspension of construction of the Galore Creek deposit by NovaGold/Teck will not have any long term material effect on Romios or the Newmont Lake Property. The Newmont Lake Property is in close proximity to the highway and the Galore road has been substantially completed beyond the Newmont Lake Property.

Tom Drivas, president and CEO of Romios, stated "We are very pleased to have reached an agreement with Gulf to modify the existing option and joint venture arrangement. We are excited about the prospects for the Newmont Lake Property and the resources defined on that property and intend to do further extensive exploration of the Newmont Lake Property in 2008."

For the purposes of the disclosure in this Press Release, Thomas Skimming, P.Eng., Vice-President of Exploration and a Director is the Qualified Person ("QP") in accordance with NI-43-101.
