    VANCOUVER, Aug. 2 /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 Aeroquest International Limited, to fly airborne geophysics
over its properties in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). This program
will commence in early August.
    Jean Luc Roy, President of El Nino states, "I'm looking forward to
working with a proven and reliable company such as Aeroquest on our DRC
project. This survey will be used to confirm our known mineralized copper
zones identified earlier using remote sensing. We are also ramping up our
field teams to ensure that we can commence our first drill program scheduled
for September and October 2007. When we set out on this project, our corporate
objective was to fast track our exploration efforts in the DRC; El Nino
Ventures is on schedule to achieve this objective."
    Aeroquest is a mining and energy services company, providing commercial
airborne geophysical surveys for use in mineral and oil and gas exploration.
    The AeroTEM System is an innovative airborne electromagnetic and magnetic
platform designed for mineral exploration to depths of 400 meters and more.
