TORONTO, July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - ROMARCO MINERALS INC. (TSX: R) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that following the posting of the Final Environmental Impact Statement on July 24, 2014 on the US Army Corps of Engineers ("Corps") website, www.hailegoldmineeis.com, the Corps has now informed the Company it will issue its Record of Decision ("ROD") on the 404 Wetlands permit application in November 2014. The 404 permit is the only Federal environmental permit required for the Haile Gold Mine.
Diane R. Garrett, President & CEO commented: "We are pleased that the Corps has announced its guidance on the timing of the ROD. The November timing falls within our planned schedule for funding and preparing for construction activities at the Haile Gold Mine.

In 2013, the Company received four State permits - the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit, Air Quality permit, Dam Safety permit, and Stormwater Construction permit. The State permits or authorizations remaining for the Haile project include, among others, the State Mine Operating permit, and 401 Water Quality Certification.
