El Nino Ventures Inc to start 5,000 meter drill program on their Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Properties

    VANCOUVER, Aug. 20 /CNW/ - El Nino Ventures Inc. ("El Nino") (TSX.V: ELN;
OTCBB: ELNOF; Frankfurt: E7Q) is pleased to announce that it has entered into
an agreement with DrillAfrica Company Limited, to complete a minimum of
5,000 meters of drilling over its properties in the Democratic Republic of
Congo (DRC). This program is scheduled to start in mid September.
    Jean Luc Roy, President of El Nino states, "We are very pleased to
announce to our shareholders that we have secured a drill rig to start our
initial drill program in the DRC. This program will consist of a minimum of
5,000 meters of Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling to test the anomalies
identified in our remote sensing survey that was carried out previously.
    Our geological team will be on the ground by the end of August to prepare
the drill sites and set up the camp necessary to carry out this program. I
will personally be in the DRC from the 10th of September onwards to ensure
that all is in place to successfully carry out this program. Our whole team
has worked hard to get all the equipment necessary to the DRC so that
everything is in place for this program. The rainy season in the DRC starts
around mid-November so we will be in a position to complete a minimum of 5,000
meters before the rains arrive.
    When we acquired these properties our goal was to fast-track our
exploration efforts and we have delivered on this objective."
