    -   Second drill rig now working on site.
    -   Drill program expanded from 5,000 meters to 7,000 meters.
    -   Presently negotiating for land position expansion.

    VANCOUVER, Oct. 25 /CNW/ - El Nino Ventures Inc. ("El Nino") (TSX.V: ELN;
OTCBB: ELNOF; Frankfurt: E7Q) is pleased to announce that their previously
announced 5,000 meter, reverse circulation drill program in the Democratic
Republic of Congo (DRC) will be expanded to 7,000 meters. A second drill rig
was mobilized and is now in operation on the properties. The second drill rig
will be used to drill the artisanal workings on the property and will also
drill off the newly identified copper showing.
    The expansion of this drill program will enable us collect the maximum
information possible before the rainy season halts this initial drilling
program. We anticipate being able to drill up to the beginning of December.
All drill chips samples will be collected under strict supervision and will be
assayed by ALS Chemex laboratories in South Africa. ALS Chemex is a
internationally recognized and respected assaying company.
    Jean Luc Roy, President of El Nino states, "I am very pleased that we
have been able to source and mobilize a second drill rig. With the number of
targets we have it is comforting that we will be able to expand our drill
program to 7,000 meters and complete it before the rainy season. This initial
drill program will give our technical team substantial information that will
be used to plan and prepare our 2008 exploration program. Our newly identified
copper showing and the area known as artisanal workings will be drilled off
using the second drill rig."
