August 20, 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 DrillAfrica Company Limited, to complete a minimum of 5,000 meters of drilling over its properties  in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). This program is scheduled to start in mid September.

Jean Luc Roy, President of El Niņo states, "We are very pleased to announce to our shareholders that we have secured a drill rig to start our initial drill program in the DRC. This program will consist of a minimum of 5,000 meters of Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling to test the anomalies identified in our remote sensing survey that was carried out previously.

Our geological team will be on the ground by the end of August to prepare the drill sites and set up the camp necessary to carry out this program. I will personally be in the DRC from the 10th of September onwards to ensure that all is in place to successfully carry out this program. Our whole team has worked hard to get all the equipment necessary to the DRC so that everything is in place for this program. The rainy season in the DRC starts around mid-November so we will be in a position to complete a minimum of 5,000 meters before the rains arrive

When we acquired these properties our goal was to fast-track our exploration efforts and we have delivered on this objective. "
