  • All drill chips samples at ALS Chemex Laboratories in South Africa
  • Drill results to be released when received.
  • Soil sampling program to start in next few weeks
  • Planning is underway to define 2008 exploration and drilling campaign

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. "
