Romarco intercepts 17.8 meters of 3.1 g/t at Haile



    SPARKS, NV, June 30 /CNW Telbec/ - ROMARCO MINERALS INC. (TSXV: R) (the
"Company") is pleased to announce assay results from the drilling program at
the Haile Mine, in South Carolina. DDH-306 returned a 17.8 meter (58.5 feet)
sequence grading 3.1 g/t gold above another sequence of 30.5 meters (100 feet)
sequence grading 2.1 g/t gold. DDH-306 intersected this zone 40 meters (132
feet) to the north of DDH-302 which encountered 24 meters (80 feet) with 7.7
g/t gold above another zone of 29 meters (96.4 feet) of 9.2 g/t gold. DDH-306
extends the width of the mineralization and current drilling is focused on
continuing to expand the mineralization along strike and down-dip to the
north. Romarco is aggressively expanding its exploration program as the
current mineralized zone continues to remain open in three directions (north,
east and west).
    DDH-306 was drilled at a minus 80 degree inclination to the south. Gold
mineralization of over 1.0 g/t was first intersected at 59 meters (194 feet)
below the surface and the mineralization was hosted in pyrite bearing,
silicified, quartz-sericite phyllite and in potentially sheared portions of
feldspar porphyry. Within the gold mineralized intervals, several higher grade
zones were encountered including 6.5 meters (21.5 feet) of 5.6 g/t gold. See
the table below for details.

    Current exploration efforts are focused on extending the mineralization to
the north and east of the mineralized zone. Step-out drilling to the north and
the east has intersected favorably looking zones which include the presence of
visible gold. Assay results for these holes are pending.
    The Company has also received assay results from drill holes DDH-291,
DDH-299, DDH-303, and DDH-304. These holes are designed to confirm the
presence of mineralization reported by previous property owners and to obtain
test samples for metallurgy, geochemistry, and environmental work. The results
of these holes are listed in the table below.

    DDH-291 went from mineralization into a post-mineral, diabase dike. This
indicates that the dike has bisected the mineralization and additional
mineralization may be on the other side of the dike. There are several
post-mineral, diabase dikes that trend between the mineralized zones on the
property. Historically, there was significantly less drill density in this
area because of the increased likelihood of encountering post-mineral dikes.
Romarco's technical team believes that some of these areas are mineralized and
there may be an opportunity to merge the mineralized zones. DDH-299 was
designed to test the mineralization in the the area of the diabase dikes and
was successful in returning gold values of 6.4 meters of 3.6 g/t gold.
    Currently, two core drill rigs are working on site. The current program
is designed to identify additional resources, convert historic resources into
proven and probable reserves, and provide representative samples for
metallurgical test work as it relates to the bankable feasibility study.
    Drilling services are being performed by Boart Longyear. The core samples
are being assayed by Inspectorate Labs in Sparks, NV. The core was quartered
and sampled with control samples inserted. The results of the control samples
were all within acceptable ranges. Romarco's Qualified Person is Tom Kilbey,
Sr. Geologist with the Company.
    Romarco Minerals Inc. is a gold development company focused on production
in the US and Mexico. The Company's flagship project is the Haile Gold Mine in
South Carolina which is currently undergoing exploration drilling, bankable
feasibility study and permitting. The Pinos Gold District in Mexico is a high
