August 2, 2007, Vancouver, BC -- El Niņo Ventures Inc. ("El Niņo") (TSX.V: ELN; OTCBB: ELNOF; Frankfurt: E7Q) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Aeroquest International Limited, to fly airborne geophysics over its properties in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). This program will commence in early August.

Jean Luc Roy, President of El Niņo states, "I looking forward to working with a proven and reliable company such as Aeroquest on our DRC project. This survey will be used to confirm our known mineralized copper zones identified earlier using remote sensing. We are also ramping up our field teams to ensure that we can commence our first drill program scheduled for September and October 2007. When we set out on this project, our corporate objective was to fast track our exploration efforts in the DRC; El Nino Ventures is on schedule to achieve this objective."

Aeroquest is a mining and energy services company, providing commercial airborne geophysical surveys for use in mineral and oil and gas exploration.

The AeroTEM System is an innovative airborne electromagnetic and magnetic platform designed for mineral exploration to depths of 400 meters and more. Introduced in 1999, AeroTEM has flown tens of thousands of line-kilometers, and has been credited with a number of discoveries.
