January 18th, 2008, Vancouver, BC -- El Niņo Ventures Inc. ("El Niņo")
(TSX.V: ELN; OTCBB: ELNOF; Frankfurt: E7Q) announces that the results of the 2007 drill campaign should start coming in by the end of January 2008.
The company has started 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.
Jean Luc Roy, President of El Nino states, "As of today we have not received any assay results from our 2007 drill campaign but we have received confirmation from ALS Chemex of Johannesburg that our results will start coming in by the end of January 2008. The backlog at the laboratory combined with the slowdown over the holiday period has delayed our results well beyond our expectations. We will publish our results as they are received from ALS Chemex for the benefit of our valued shareholders."
