  • ELN completed a Remote Sensing Survey over research permits in DRC
  • ELN identifies four copper mineralized anomalies.
  • All four mineralized zones confirm the geological model of the company on these prospecting permits.
  • Zone 1 anomaly center, is coincident with known and confirmed copper artisan workings.

July 23 2007, Vancouver, BC -- El Niņo Ventures Inc. ("El Niņo") (TSX.V: ELN; OTCBB: ELNOF; Frankfurt: E7Q) is pleased to announce that based on the preliminary report of a remote sensing survey conducted by Hamilton Hycroft Energy Inc (HHE), four copper mineralized anomalous zones have been identified on its newly acquired research permits in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). For this survey, HHE applied the Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (IRIS) technology using hyperspectral images which can recognize and map particular types of vegetation or diagnose minerals associated with ore deposits.

According to this survey the four copper mineralized anomalous zones identified are of the following size:

  • Zone 1 covers an area of 3.2 km by 2.28 km.
  • Zone 2 covers an area of 4.1 km by 1.14 km.
  • Zone 3 covers an area of 1.1 km by 1.1 km.
  • Zone 4 covers an area of 2.28 km by 0.68 km.

The center of Zone 1 is exactly coincident with known and confirmed copper artisanal workings. All four areas confirm the geological interpretation of the area by  the company.

Jean Luc Roy, President of El Nino stated: ''These preliminary results are very encouraging in our quest of exploring and ultimately putting together a copper mining operation in the DRC. The fact that these results coincide perfectly with known copper artisanal workings is a strong indicator of the benefits, in using this method in our exploration efforts.''

The remote sensing survey will be followed up by an airborne geophysical survey and a ground prospecting program to be conducted in the next few weeks followed by a drilling campaign of the best copper occurrences.

Benoit Violette, PGeo consulting geologist and a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed this press release after it was prepared by ELN's management.
