This $5 million program over the Bathurst Mining Camp will include 23,500 metres of drilling to be completed by March 2007.

Jean Luc Roy, President of El Niņo states - "These results are very encouraging and El Nino plans to assess this area in detail over the next few months to see if a resource can be outlined. We now have been drilling for over a month in Bathurst and we are very happy with the rate of success in finding sulphide mineralization on our targets. The Titan 24 Geophysics program is proving very effective in outlining and defining our drill targets and we look forward to much more news out of the camp as we continue drilling over the winter months through to the end of March 2007. We now have two drill rigs on the site and a third will be in place by the beginning of December to drill outlined Titan 24 targets, along the Mine Horizon between the Brunswick No.12 mine and Brunswick No.6.

Quality Control
Drill core is logged at the Brunswick No. 12 minesite exploration core shack and mineralized interval samples are taken from the drill core (NQ size) sawed in half with one half sent to the Brunswick No. 12 laboratory and other half retained for future reference.  A strict QA/QC program is followed which includes mineralization standards, blanks and field duplicates for each batch of samples.  The Bathurst Mining Camp Exploration Program is being carried out under the direction of Xstrata Zinc Canada exploration manager Normand Dupras, P. Geo., a qualified person as defined by National 43-101 guidelines.  The information in this release was prepared under the direction of Doug Clark P.
