TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – Sept. 10, 2015) – Romios Gold Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RG)(OTC PINK:RMIOF)(FRANKFURT:D4R) (“Romios” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that additional prospecting and sampling was carried out during August, 2015 on its Burgundy Ridge discovery located in the vicinity of Newmont Lake within its large (75,996 hectares/187,786 acres) Golden Triangle Property in northwestern British Columbia.
The intent of the current work is to expand the area of the copper-gold-silver mineralization at Burgundy Ridge previously reported in Press Releases dated October 7, 2013 and September 23, 2014. The high grade zones, characterized by the presence of significant amounts of chalcopyrite and chalcocite, were found to extend in a southwest direction well beyond the area that was sampled systematically during the summer of 2014. Continuous chip samples and representative grab samples were collected this year from this new area of copper-gold-silver mineralization that appears to have an affinity for an epidote-garnet skarn and which appears to be structurally related to a contact between dolomitic limestone and intrusive porphyries. The skarn appears to strike into an icefield and dips into the mountain which bodes well for the preservation of the mineralized system. All samples have been submitted to ALS Laboratories in Vancouver, B.C. for assay, with the results to be released when received and reviewed by the Company.
As previously reported (Press Release, September 23, 2014) during the 2014 summer exploration program, 173 rock chip samples were collected at the widespread copper-gold-silver zone at Burgundy Ridge. In the northeast corner of the zone, a line of 30 contiguous samples, 45 metres in length, averaged 0.30% copper, 0.07g/t gold and 3.19 g/t silver. A further 24 metre line of samples, approximately 65 metres to the southwest, averaged 0.72% copper, 0.12 g/t gold and 5.17 g/t silver. A further 130 metres to the southwest, a 6 metre line of samples averaged 2.27% copper, 12.14g/t gold and 48.77g/t silver. Approximately 50 metres further southwest, two lines of samples, one 22.5 metres in length and the other,18 metres in length averaged 0.48% copper, 0.18 g/t gold, 2.55 g/t silver and 0.59% copper, 0.33 g/t gold, 4.93 g/t silver respectively. In the southeast corner of Burgundy Ridge, eight contiguous samples collected along a 12 metre long line averaged 0.43% copper, 0.38 g/t gold and 18.67 g/t silver. Higher grade zones of mineralization occur within or adjacent to the sample lines, the most notable of which is a 3.0 metre long rock chip sample that assayed 5.12% copper, 28.49 g/t gold and 89.65 g/t silver. This sample included 1.5 metres that assayed 9.11% copper, 51.2 g/t gold and 171.0 g/t silver. In the far northwest corner of Burgundy Ridge, a contiguous line of samples 9.0 metres in length averaged 0.87% copper, 0.12 g/t gold and 7.97 g/t silver.
