Romios Gold Resources Inc. is pleased to announce that the Company expects to start a NQ drill core program of up to 2,000 metres on its Lundmark-Akow Lakes property this week. The drill program will test the significance of the geophysical anomalies which are deeper than those tested in previously drilled holes. The Lundmark-Akow Lakes claims are located approximately 18km north of Goldcorp's Musselwhite Mine, within the North Caribou Lake greenstone belt in the Patricia Mining Division, northwestern Ontario.
The previously reported five holes drilled by Romios to test the copper zone during the winter of 1998-1999 (holes RGRI-99-1 to RGRI-99-5) intersected wide zones of potentially significant copper and gold mineralization over a strike length of more than 1,000 metres (3,280 feet). (News Release, March 31, 1999).
In another nearby gold-bearing deformation zone, 14 grab and channel samples collected from an outcrop area assayed from a low of 12.26 gpt (0.358 oz/ton) to a high of 1,323.81 gpt (38.612 oz/ton) of gold. (News Release, November 24, 1997).
