Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - June 13, 2024) - Romios Gold Resources Inc. (TSXV: RG) (OTCQB: RMIOF) (FSE: D4R) ("Romios Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to report that Photosat has recently completed an in-depth, advanced re-interpretation of the previously reported Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) satellite image study that outlined the specific alteration minerals associated with mineralization on Romios' Kinkaid property in Mineral County, Nevada.

This new work used proprietary Deep Learning Technology to differentiate the types of sericite associated with the known mineralized structures and then outlined the same signature on several major, previously unrecognized, linear alteration zones potentially associated with additional mineralized vein systems.

John Biczok, VP Exploration, stated: "This advanced processing of the satellite imagery over Kinkaid by Photosat has provided some significant new targets in terms of both size and their similarity to the alteration minerals along the high-grade Au-Cu-Ag vein deposits mined in this area historically. At least one broad, circular zone of persistent sericite alteration >1 km wide was also identified, along with several clusters of spot anomalies; these zones generally overlie high-grade Cu-Au+/-Ag vein deposits (see Photo 1) and may outline the upper portions of buried porphyry copper systems."


  • The same sericite alteration signature detected along the known, 400-500 m long Au-Cu-Ag vein deposits has now been detected in 2 nearby, parallel zones, also 4-500 m long. One of the known deposits has 3.2 km of historic, underground mine workings.
  • The favourable sericite signature has also been outlined in a >1 km wide, persistent circular pattern over the new KIN target discovered in 2023. At this site, nine mineralized boulders sampled along a 300-metre-long stretch of a dry stream bed returned copper values from 0.73% to 13.3% Cu, averaging 5.03% Cu (see Romios press release October 12, 2023). One boulder of magnetite, a common component of veins in many porphyry copper and skarn systems, assayed 12.7 g/t Au. The mineralized samples were located near numerous large boulders with strong epidote alteration very similar to porphyry copper and/or skarn alteration zones.
  • A team of Romios' senior personnel will be following up on these new targets beginning June 14th.

Stephen Burega, President and CEO stated: "We have been working on the assumption that these high-grade veins are part of the upper portion of a buried porphyry copper system(s) and this new revelation of a >1 km wide sericitic alteration zone, centred over an area of known porphyry-type alteration and high-grade mineralization in boulders, is a major step forward for this project and supports Romios' porphyry modelling."

The Kinkaid property now consists of 131 claims, covering approximately 11.0 sq km, located 18 km east of the town of Hawthorne where the prolific Walker Lane trend overlaps the southern edge of the mineral-rich Basin and Range geological province. The claims are largely accessible by road and short hikes.
