Romios Expands Tenure Position and Provides Exploration Update on Its Golden Triangle Project, Northwestern British Columbia

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 27, 2012) - Romios Gold Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RG)(OTCBB:RMIOF)(FRANKFURT:D4R) ("Romios" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the acquisition of approximately 5,700 hectares of mineral tenures within the so-called Golden Triangle area in northwestern British Columbia. Romios now holds approximately 72,000 hectares in the vicinity of Pretium Resources' Brucejack deposit, Barrick Gold's Eskay Creek mine and the Galore Creek Mining Corporation's Galore Creek project (a NovaGold/Teck Resources' joint venture).

The mineral tenures expand Romios' land position southward along the projected metallogenic corridor of the Newmont Lake Project. Field evidence acquired during Romios' 2012 summer exploration campaign (reviewed in Press Releases dated August 9 and July 10, 2012) confirms that the mineralized zones on the Newmont Lake Project coincides with the BC Ministry of Mines' ("BCGS") interpretation of a volcanic massive sulphide ("VMS") belt of mineralization which extends over a distance of at least 20 kilometres (see Press Release dated March 3, 2011, and BCGS Open File 2011-02).

Mineralization on the new claims includes the Argent showing- BC Minfile # 104B 348- named for the significant occurrences of silver. In 1989, Pezgold Resources reported 30 grab samples collected from numerous quartz veins within a highly silicified shear zone at the Argent showing (BC Assessment Report 18546). Of these, sample 22190 assayed 369.64 oz/tonne Ag, 4.22 g/t Au, and greater than 2% Cu; four additional grab samples assayed 4,387.8 g/t Ag, 2,065 g/t Ag, 524.56 g/t Ag, and 146.5 g/t Ag (samples 22191, 22279, 22286, and 22289, respectively). Romios intends to verify these non NI 43-101 compliant assays with QAQC-directed trench and chip sampling in future exploration campaigns.

The new mineral tenures additionally secure a land position approximately 4.5 kilometres from the developing hydroelectric power, communications, and road infrastructure at the mouth of the McLymont River (see Press Release dated April 3, 2012).

As of late August, 2012, Romios has completed 15 diamond drill holes totalling 2,613 metres on its Newmont Lake property. Drilling at the Ken Zone encountered visible gold and VMS-style mineralization. Geophysics and drilling extended Romios' 72 Zone porphyry discovery and intercepted a mineralized porphyry underlying the zone of bornite and chalcopyrite mineralization exposed at surface. Recent drilling carried out at the Northwest Zone indicates that the known zone of gold-silver-copper mineralization is wider and larger than historically recognized. All drill assay results will be released when received and reviewed by the Company.

In addition to the geophysical and drill program, Romios completed a technical review of the Trek Property's North Zone and confirmed extensions of geophysical conductors to the north and south.

Drill core has been cut using an electric-powered core saw, bagged and sealed for shipping to SGS Minerals for processing in Telkwa, BC. In addition to the laboratory's quality control program, a rigorous on-site quality assurance and quality control program is implemented involving the insertion of blanks, standards and splits to ensure reliable assay results.

The technical information contained in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Scott Close, P.Geo., Exploration Manager for Romios and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
