About El Nino Ventures

In Canada, El Nino holds a 50% interest in an extensive base metal project located within the Bathurst mining camp in Bathurst, New Brunswick, where earlier drilling campaigns have been carried out on several historical deposits of lead, zinc and copper mineralization within the large claim block owned 50% ELN, 50% Xstrata Zinc.

El Niño subsequently entered into an option agreement with Votorantim Metals Canada Inc. and Xstrata Zinc Canada whereby Votorantim may earn a 50% interest in El Niño's landholdings by expending $10 million over 5 years and may further increase its interest in El Niño's landholdings to 70% by expending an additional $10 million over a further two years. (Please see release dated May 4, 2010,).
