June 11, 2007, Vancouver, BC. -- El Niņo Ventures Inc. ("El Niņo") (TSX.V: ELN; OTCBB: ELNOF; Frankfurt: E7Q) and GCP Group are pleased to announce the formation of a new company called Infinity Resources SPRL. This new Congolese company is held by El Niņo, with a 70 percent interest and GCP Group with a 30 percent interest. Our initial land position is between Lubumbashi and Likasi right in the heart of the (DRC) Copperbelt. Our stated objective is to identify a Copper deposit on this property and move into production.


Moving Forward in the DRC
Our work program in the Congo will commence in the next couple weeks. We will be flying airborne geophysics MAG and EM over our property to specify targets for drilling.
El Niņo's extensive years of experience in the (DRC) will prove helpful, as we move into the exploration phase of our work program we anticipate to begin drilling before the next rainy season.

Bathurst Mining Camp Update
The Government of New Brunswick has approved a 2.5 million dollar grant this week, for this year's exploration program. This brings our previous announced exploration program from 4.5 million to 5 million dollars. We will start drilling a minimum of 25,000 meters starting in the last week of June. El Niņo and Xstrata Zinc are thankful to the Provincial Government of New Brunswick, for their support in our efforts on the Bathurst Mining Camp.  

About El Niņo Ventures Inc.
El Niņo's growth strategy is to develop our existing projects and continue an aggressive acquisition program to acquire new projects and place them into production. Our first new base metal acquisition in the DRC compliments our aggressive zinc exploration plan for the Bathurst Mining Camp with our partner Xstrata Zinc. In June 2007, our company begins a fully funded $4.5 million dollar exploration program which includes a 25,000 meter drill program which will use a minimum of three drill rigs drilling 24 hours a day for up to nine months. EL Niņo is also the owner and operator of the Bancroft Uranium projects. El Niņo is currently in its most aggressive acquisition phase of the company's history.
