ELN News Sept 30 2005

September 30, 2005, Vancouver, BC -- El Nino Ventures Inc. (TSX.V: ELN) is pleased to announce the commencement of the second phase of exploration on the Bancroft Uranium Project in early October.  The Project is comprised of eight properties in the Bancroft region, well known for its historical uranium production from four former producing mines.  Under two separate agreements, El Nino may earn up to 100% interest.
Preliminary Exploration Program -- May 2005
A preliminary exploration program of geological and scintillometer reconnaissance was conducted in May 2005 on all eight of the properties. In addition, the Halo Property (North West Zone) and Amalgamated Rare Earth Property, which host the largest historic uranium reserves (not 43-101 compliant), were targeted for more detailed exploration.  As described in the announcement of July 18, 2005, the program for these properties included mechanical stripping, scintillometer surveying, and chip and grab rock sampling for uranium and thorium assaying, and was successful in confirming the historically established grades.  Based on the results of this program, El Nino's consulting geologist, T.J. Beesley, P.Eng., recommended a follow up deep drilling program to verify down dip extension of uranium mineralization for these properties.  Details of this program are in development.

Second Phase Exploration -- October 2005
The goal of this second exploration program is to survey the remaining six properties (please see Location Map, page 2) in greater detail, and will include gridding, scintillometer surveying, geological mapping, mechanical stripping, and chip and grab rock sampling for uranium and thorium.  The objective of the second phase work is to confirm the original grades and establish future exploration plans.  The Company is also actively seeking a joint venture partner to assist in the future development of one or more of these properties.
