Romios Gold Identifies Additional Targets at its Galore Area Properties From Airborne EM and Magnetometer Surveys

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - Romios Gold Resources Inc. ("Romios" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:RG)(OTCBB:RMIOF)(FRANKFURT:D4R) is pleased to report the results of recently completed airborne geophysical surveys carried out at its Royce - Porc and Trek properties located in the Galore Creek area. A DIGHEM airborne geophysical survey was flown by Equity Engineering Ltd and coverage consisted of approximately 830 line -km, including 81 line -km of control lines. The purpose of the survey was to detect zones of conductive sulphide minerization, to outline any porphyry - like intrusives, and to provide information that could be used to map the geology and structure of the survey areas. The survey data were processed and compiled by Fugro Airborne Surveys, Toronto office and interpreted by consulting geophysicist Jan Klein. P. Eng, P. Geo on behalf of Romios.

Royce- Porc

The airborne survey identified an area of resistivity low (less than 1000 ohm) measuring 500 m x 1300 m. The area is interpreted as an alteration pipe, which is associated with previously identified mineralization located nearby. The Jeffe Zone, with samples grading 13.1 g/t gold over one metre of trenching, lies on the eastern margin of the anomaly. A grab float sample from the Royce Zone, which is located within the anomalous area, graded 769 g/t gold.

Trek Property

The Trek property is located within Nova Gold's Galore Creek claim boundary and lies approximately 12 kms south of the Galore Creek deposit. An anomaly consisting of a circular cluster of conductors about 250 metres in diameter was identified. The anomaly is viewed as an extension of the North Zone, which has a reported weighted average grade of 2.45% copper and 0.23 g/t gold from channel samples over an area of 18 x 20 m of breccia, with copper values greater than 0.5 % copper over a larger area in altered wall rocks. The conductors contained both magnetic and non-magnetic components.

A linear zone of discontinuous magnetic/non- magnetic conductors was identified along Trek creek. The zone extends over 4 kms and exhibits low resitivity, low magnetics and numerous magnetic/ non magnetic conductors. The Gully Zone, located 300 metres west and parallel to the anomaly is mineralized. Previous drilling on the Gully Zone intersected 10.4 metres grading 1.5 % copper and 1.5 g/t gold.

Tom Drivas, President stated, "These new and additional geophysical targets on our Galore Creek area properties further confirm the exploration potential of our land package. A $5 million exploration and drilling program is scheduled for our Galore Creek properties, commencing this month.
