El Nino Ventures Identifies New Copper Mineralized Zone on Properties in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)

    TSX.V: ELN

    -   New copper mineralized zone identified.
    -   Airborne geophysics survey well underway.
    -   5,000 meters of drilling will be completed before the rainy season.
    -   Presently negotiating acquisition of new research permits.

    VANCOUVER, Sept. 20 /CNW/ - El Nino Ventures Inc. ("El Nino") (TSX.V:
ELN; OTCBB: ELNOF; Frankfurt: E7Q) is pleased to announce that a new copper
mineralized zone has been identified on its properties in the Democratic
Republic of Congo (DRC). This zone is just two kilometers away from the center
of our already identified main zone that was outlined using the IRIS remote
sensing survey. Several samples have been taken all of which contain
substantial visible copper mineralization. These samples will be assayed
shortly. This zone is being mapped and interpreted by our geological team and
will be incorporated into our forthcoming 5,000 meter drill program.
    Our previously announced 5.000 meter drill program will be completed
before the rainy season and we anticipate starting our drilling campaign in
early October. The previously announced, mid September start date has been
revised to early October due to drill availability. An airborne geophysical
survey is well under way and should be completed in the next two weeks, with
final interpretation shortly thereafter.
    Jean Luc Roy, President of El Nino states: "I am presently in the DRC
(Congo) and very pleased with the progress we are making in the field. Despite
a minor delay in the start of our drill program we will be able to meet our
objective of completing 5,000 meters before the rainy season. The new copper
zone identified is visually very impressive and I look forward to
incorporating it into our drill program plans. I am also actively seeking new
acquisitions in the DRC while I am here and I will report back on this matter
in the near future."
