    TSX.V: ELN
    Frankfurt: E7Q

    VANCOUVER, June 3 /CNW/ - El Nino Ventures Inc. ("El Nino" and "the
Company") (TSX.V: ELN; Frankfurt: E7Q) As a result of a review by the British
Columbia Securities Commission ("BCSC"), we are issuing the following press
release to clarify our disclosure.
    In response to comments received from the BCSC (by letter dated April 7,
2008), the Company has amended and restated its interim consolidated financial
statements for the periods ended April 30, July 31 and October 31, 2007
("Interim Financial Statements") and corresponding management discussion and
analysis ("MD&A") for each such financial period and for the year ended
January 31, 2007.
    The amendment and restatement of the Interim Financial Statements was
primarily due to adjustments required for the future income tax recovery on
flow-through shares ($1.7 million) and adjustments related to stock-based
compensation. The Company also took the opportunity to amend a number of
disclosure deficiencies identified by the BCSC and adjust for other
non-material accounting adjustments. A summary of the significant changes to
the figures is presented below:
    A full description of the adjustments made are noted in the amended and
restated Interim Financial Statements, which, along with the MD&A, are
available at www.sedar.com.
