    VANCOUVER, June 14 /CNW/ - El Nino Ventures Inc. ("El Nino") (TSX.V: ELN;
OTCBB: ELNOF; Frankfurt: E7Q) is pleased to update our shareholders that our
exploration program is underway on Research Permits No. 5214, 5215, 5216 and
5217 (Copper Mountain Project). These permits were granted by the Cadastre
Miner of the DRC and cover over 350 square kilometers. Our Copper Mountain
project is located just 3 kilometers west of Anvil Mining's (TSX-AVM)
(www.anvilmining.com) new discovery where they have reported 10.9% Cu over
21 meters, 8.9% Cu over 36 meters, 8.6% Cu over 31 meters and 8.6% Cu over
21 meters. Our project is also only 4 kilometers west of Tiger Resources'
(ASX-TGS) (www.tigerez.com) Kipoi project where they intersected 122 meters of
over 7.31% Cu.
    Jean Luc Roy, President of El Nino states: Our Copper Mountain Project in
the DRC is located in the middle of two new discoveries by Anvil Mining and
Tiger Resources. The geological trend of these two new discoveries runs right
through our Copper Mountain project and we are fast tracking our efforts to
outline a new copper deposit by flying airborne geophysics and our first
drilling campaign is slated for the fall 2007. El Nino Ventures joins these
companies in the DRC for what is considered by most experts in the industry as
the new era for copper in the DRC.

    About the DRC

    The DRC Copperbelt hosts multiple world class deposits and the
exploration potential is considered one of the best in the world. In late 2006
the DRC had its first free election in 48 years and previous to that it
established a new mining code in 2003. These events have created a renewed
confidence for investors in the DRC. Major mining companies such as Phelps
Dodge and First Quantum Minerals are now in construction on world class ore
bodies. Several junior companies are now actively exploring for copper and
other minerals in the DRC. Most known deposits in the DRC were found in the
last 1940's and 50's. From 2000 several new deposits were found by companies
like Anvil Mining and First Quantum Minerals. The potential for finding new
world class ore bodies is real.
    Our projects are in the same geological belt as properties that have
yielded deposits and excellent copper values for companies like Anvil Mining
Limited and Tiger Resources Limited. These projects are adjacent to land
holdings held by major companies like BHP Billiton and Gecamines.
    With this addition to our portfolio of exploration projects puts El Nino
at the forefront of base metals exploration. Our Bathurst New Brunswick
project with our partner, Xstrata Zinc is starting its second year with plans
to diamond drill more than 25,000 meters this year. This project combined with
our entry in the DRC provides the company with a robust portfolio of
exploration projects and we will work these projects effectively for our
shareholders over the next few years.
