Romios is Pleased at the Granting of a Contract for the Design and Construction of the Northwest Transmission Line

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 9, 2011) - Romios Gold Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RG)(OTCBB:RMIOF)(FRANKFURT:D4R) ("Romios" or the "Company") is pleased to report that on September 2, 2011 Valard Construction Ltd., one of Canada's largest power line contractors, announced that the team of Valard Construction Ltd and Burns & McDonnell, two high-quality contractors capable of providing turnkey solutions for power system requirements, have finalized a contract with BC Hydro for the engineering, procurement and construction of the Northwest Transmission Line (NTL), a 344-kilometre (213-mile), 287- kilovolt transmission line between Skeena Substation and a new substation to be built near Bob Quinn Lake in northwestern British Columbia. This development follows the approval granted by the Provincial Environmental Assessment Office on February 24, 2011, for the extension of the provincial power grid into the "Golden Triangle" region of British Columbia where a number of mineral exploration and mining companies have generated advanced-stage exploration projects during the last several years.

Tom Drivas, President of Romios, stated: "We were pleased to learn that B.C. Hydro had awarded a contract to Valard Construction Ltd. and Burns & McDonnell, two highly qualified and capable contracting companies, for the design and construction of the Northwest Transmission Line. This power line will provide an essential source of electricity for the development of the natural resources in the "Golden Triangle" region of British Columbia and collaterally, will create numerous economic and employment opportunities. The expanded power grid will enhance the probability of the development of a number of mining properties in the area, including Romios' Trek, Dirk and Newmont Lake projects."
