December 10, 2007,
Vancouver, BC -- El Niņo Ventures Inc. ("El Niņo") (TSX.V:
ELN; OTCBB: ELNOF; Frankfurt: E7Q)
is pleased to announce that all samples are now at the
ALS Chemex laboratories in South Africa. Results will be released once all
assays and results have been communicated to El Nino.
The company will
also start a soil sampling program to cover the research permits owned by the
company. This soil sampling program will focus on new areas of interest
identified on the research permits and the results will be incorporated into the
2008 exploration program. Over the next few months some 25,000 samples will be
taken with the bulk of these samples taken where mineralization is outcropping
or where artisanal workers have been active. Complete mapping of the research
permits will be done at the same time as the soil sampling program.
Jean Luc Roy, President
of El Nino states, "Even if the rains have stopped our
2007 drilling campaign, we are initiating a soil
sampling program to gain even more information that will
be used to define our 2008 exploration and drilling
campaign. Our drill results will be used to complement
our analysis of the airborne geophysics and this will
give us a solid foundation for next year. "
El Niņo Ventures is a junior exploration company, whose corporate
objective is to revisit former mining regions and apply the latest technologies
to advanced stage exploration targets. El Niņo has acquired a 70% interest in
over 350 square kilometers in the world renowned copper belt in the Democratic
Republic of Congo. In addition to our copper project in the Congo, El Niņo is
currently in the middle of a 25,000 meter drill program on the Bathurst Mining
Camp via an option/ joint venture agreement with Xstrata Zinc.
On Behalf of the Board of Directors,
