Romarco expands mineralization to North - Drills 27.4 meters of 2.9 g/t Au

    SPARKS, NV, May 27 /CNW Telbec/ - ROMARCO MINERALS INC. (TSXV: R) (the
"Company") is pleased to announce assay results from several drill holes at
the Haile Gold Mine in South Carolina, USA. Three of the holes represent the
initial part of the 2009 step-out program at the North Resource (Ledbetter)
area. These holes demonstrate that mineralization continues in a northeast
direction. Ongoing step-out drilling is focused on expanding this same
mineralized zone farther north, east, and west. These step-out holes represent
the farthest north holes drilled to date. The mineralized zone, which now
spans over 3.5 km in strike length (NE to SW) and over 1.5 km north to south,
continues to remain open to the north, east, west and at depth.
    RC-1511 was the first step-out hole at the North Resource area
(Ledbetter) and encountered 27.4 meters (90 feet) of 2.9 g/t Au (0.083 opt).
RC-1511 encountered the mineralized zone 70 meters (230 feet) north of
DDH-328, which had encountered 32.8 meters (105 feet) of 2.3 g/t Au (0.067
opt). RC-1512 encountered the target mineralized host rock an additional 46
meters north of RC-1511. RC-1515 encountered 51.8 meters (170 feet) of 1.7 g/t
Au (0.049 opt) 61 meters (200 feet) northeast of the previously reported
intercept of 63.8 meters (204 feet) at 1.4 g/t Au in DDH-324.
    RC-1505 was a previously reported infill hole that had ended in 23.3 g/t
Au (0.680 opt) material at a depth of 119 meters (390 feet), the bottom of the
target zone. RC-1505 was re-entered and continued down completely through the
mineralized material for an additional 37 meters (120 ft.). The additional
drilling increased the lower zone intercept to 48.8 meters (160 feet) of 7.9
g/t Au from the previously reported 39.6 meters (130 feet) of 8.8 g/t Au
(0.257 opt). RC-1513 was also an infill hole at the North zone and encountered
21.3 meters (70 feet) of 3.3 g/t Au (0.095 opt) extending mineralization
southeast of DDH-296.

    The drill cuttings were shipped to Inspectorate Labs in Sparks, Nevada for
assay. Control samples were submitted with the drill samples. The control
samples consisted of blanks and third party standards. Standards with variance
greater than 20 percent warrant that the batch be re-assayed. The blanks and
standards included with these holes yielded assay values that were within
acceptable ranges.
