June, 14, 2007, Vancouver, BC -- El Niņo Ventures Inc.
("El Niņo") (TSX.V: ELN; OTCBB: ELNOF; Frankfurt: E7Q) is pleased to update
our shareholders that our exploration program is underway on Research Permits #
5214, 5215, 5216 and 5217 (Copper Mountain Project). These permits were granted
by the Cadastre Miner of the DRC and cover over 350 square kilometers. Our
Copper Mountain project is located just 3 kilometers west of Anvil Mining's (TSX-AVM)
discovery where they have reported 10.9% Cu over 21 meters, 8.9% Cu over 36
meters, 8.6% Cu over 31 meters and 8.6% Cu over 21 meters. Our project is also
only 4 kilometers west of Tiger Resources (ASX-TGS) (www.tigerez.com)
Kipoi project where they intersected 122 meters of over 7.31% Cu.
Jean Luc Roy, President of El Niņo states: Our Copper Mountain Project in
the DRC is located in the middle of two new discoveries by Anvil Mining and
Tiger Resources. The geological trend of these two new discoveries runs right
through our Copper Mountain project and we are fast tracking our efforts to
outline a new copper deposit by flying airborne geophysics and our first
drilling campaign is slated for the fall 2007. El Niņo Ventures joins these
companies in the DRC for what is considered by most experts in the industry as
the new era for copper in the DRC.
About the DRC
The DRC Copperbelt hosts multiple world class deposits and the exploration
potential is considered one of the best in the world. In late 2006 the DRC had
its first free election in 48 years and previous to that it established a new
mining code in 2003. These events have created a renewed confidence for
investors in the DRC. Major mining companies such as Phelps Dodge and First
Quantum Minerals are now in construction on world class ore bodies. Several
junior companies are now actively exploring for copper and other minerals in the
DRC. Most known deposits in the DRC were found in the last 1940's and 50's.
From 2000 several new deposits were found by companies like Anvil Mining and
First Quantum Minerals. The potential for finding new world class ore bodies is
Our projects are in the same geological belt as properties that have yielded
deposits and excellent copper values for companies like Anvil Mining Limited and
Tiger Resources Limited. These projects are adjacent to land holdings held by
major companies like BHP Billiton and Gecamines.
With this addition to our portfolio of exploration projects puts El Niņo at the
forefront of base metals exploration. Our Bathurst New Brunswick project with
our partner, Xstrata Zinc is starting its second year with plans to diamond
drill more than 25,000 meters this year. This project combined with our entry in
the DRC provides the company with robust portfolio of exploration projects and
we will work these projects effectively for our shareholders over the next few
