    -  Drill results  to be released when received.
    -  Soil sampling program to start in next few weeks

    VANCOUVER, Dec. 10 /CNW/ - El Nino Ventures Inc. ("El Nino") (TSX.V: ELN;
OTCBB: ELNOF; Frankfurt: E7Q) is pleased to announce that all samples are now
at the ALS Chemex laboratories in South Africa. Results will be released once
all assays and results have been communicated to El Nino.
    The company will also start a soil sampling program to cover the research
permits owned by the company. This soil sampling program will focus on new
areas of interest identified on the research permits and the results will be
incorporated into the 2008 exploration program. Over the next few months some
25,000 samples will be taken with the bulk of these samples taken where
mineralization is outcropping or where artisanal workers have been active.
Complete mapping of the research permits will be done at the same time as the
soil sampling program.
    Jean Luc Roy, President of El Nino states, "Even if the rains have
stopped our 2007 drilling campaign, we are initiating a soil sampling program
to gain even more information that will be used to define our 2008 exploration
and drilling campaign. Our drill results will be used to complement our
analysis of the airborne geophysics and this will give us a solid foundation
for next year."
