    ELN: TSX.V   ELNOF: OTCBB   E7Q:  Germany

    VANCOUVER, June 11 /CNW/ - El Nino Ventures Inc. ("El Nino") (TSX.V: ELN;
OTCBB: ELNOF; Frankfurt: E7Q) and GCP Group are pleased to announce the
formation of a new company called Infinity Resources SPRL. This new Congolese
company is held by El Nino, with a 70 percent interest and GCP Group with a 30
percent interest. Our initial land position is between Lubumbashi and Likasi
right in the heart of the (DRC) Copperbelt. Our stated objective is to
identify a Copper deposit on this property and move into production.

    Moving Forward in the DRC

    Our work program in the Congo will commence in the next couple weeks. We
will be flying airborne geophysics MAG and EM over our property to specify
targets for drilling. El Nino's extensive years of experience in the (DRC)
will prove helpful, as we move into the exploration phase of our work program
we anticipate to begin drilling before the next rainy season.

    Bathurst Mining Camp Update

    The Government of New Brunswick has approved a 2.5 million dollar grant
this week, for this year's exploration program. This brings our previous
announced exploration program from 4.5 million to 5 million dollars. We will
start drilling a minimum of 25,000 meters starting in the last week of June.
El Nino and Xstrata Zinc are thankful to the Provincial Government of New
Brunswick, for their support in our efforts on the Bathurst Mining Camp.

    About El Nino Ventures Inc.

    El Nino's growth strategy is to develop our existing projects and
continue an aggressive acquisition program to acquire new projects and place
them into production. Our first new base metal acquisition in the DRC
compliments our aggressive zinc exploration plan for the Bathurst Mining Camp
with our partner Xstrata Zinc. In June 2007, our company begins a fully funded
$4.5 million dollar exploration program which includes a 25,000 meter drill
program which will use a minimum of three drill rigs drilling 24 hours a day
for up to nine months. El Nino is also the owner and operator of the Bancroft
Uranium projects. El Nino is currently in its most aggressive acquisition
phase of the company's history.

    On Behalf of the Board of Directors,
