TRADING SYMBOL: TSX: R

TORONTO, July 21 /CNW Telbec/ - ROMARCO MINERALS INC. (TSXV: R) (the "Company") is pleased to announce drilling results from the Ledbetter area. The encouraging results are from step-out holes that identify mineralization beyond the currently proposed Ledbetter pit.

RC-1771 is a step-out hole from the intercept encountered in RC-1622 (see the November 23, 2009 press release). RC-1771 intersects the mineralized zone 38 meters (125 feet) to the southwest of RC-1622 which contained 6.1 meters of 2.6 g/t Au and 21.3 meters of 1.6 g/t Au. The mineralization in RC-1771 is located 137 meters (450 feet) southwest of RC-1756 which was announced in the June 9, 2010 press release (32.0 meters of 2.6 g/t Au). RC-1771 encountered several mineralized zones which are detailed in the table below. The best intercepts are 19.8 meters (65 feet) of 2.2 g/t Au (0.064 opt) at 222.5 meters (730 feet) and 54.9 meters (180 feet) of 2.6 g/t Au (0.077 opt) at 297.2 meters (975 feet) down the hole. Additional step-out holes are planned in order to determine the western extent of this mineralization.

RC-1784 is a step-out hole to test the area north of RC-1622. RC-1784 encountered the mineralized zone 18 meters (60 feet) north of RC-1622 and 102 meters (337 feet) west of RC-1756. RC-1784 intersects four intervals of gold mineralization with the best being 38.1 meters (125 feet) of 11.8 g/t Au (0.344 opt) at 260.6 meters (855 feet) down the hole. Assays are pending for step-out holes to the north and east of this zone.
