ELN News Nov 29 2005


November 29, 2005, Vancouver, BC -- Further to the announcement of September 30, 2005, El Nino Ventures Inc. (TSX.V: ELN) is pleased to announce that it has now completed its second exploration program on the Bancroft uranium properties, on which the Company may earn a 100% interest.  This focus of this program was detailed exploration on six of the eight uranium properties in the Bancroft uranium mining camp.   In conjunction with the May 2005 program, which targeted the Halo and Amalgamated Rare Earth properties, the entirety of El Nino's Bancroft properties have now been examined.
The objective for each of the properties was to bracket occurrences of anomalous radioactivity, and confirm the original U308 grades, through a program of gridding, mapping, mechanical stripping, and chip and grab rock sampling.  All existing trenches and workings were tied into the grid and surveyed by scintillometer, and representative samples of higher radioactivity were taken on each of the six grids.  The samples were taken are now undergoing laboratory analysis for U3O8 and ThO2 content.
The Company currently awaits assay results in order to establish any correlation between anomalous radioactivity and U3O8 content, as well as to develop recommendations for further exploration. El Nino is also actively seeking a joint venture partner to assist in the future development of one or more of its Bancroft uranium projects.
