El Nino Provides Update on Bathurst Joint Venture Project

El Nino Ventures Inc. is pleased to provide an update on its Bathurst Joint Venture Project. The Joint Venture is a 50%:50% joint venture between ELN and Glencore Canada Corporation (GCC) in the prolific Bathurst Mining Camp of New Brunswick, Canada.

The Joint Venture seeks a 3rd party partner to explore and develop its properties and, in addition, properties in the Bathurst Camp owned 100% by GCC. In return for funding 100% of a major, multi-year exploration budget, the partner would earn-in to a 50% equity position in the Joint Venture and the GCC 100% owned land. Expressions of Interest will be evaluated from credible and well-funded companies with experienced management and exploration teams, and preferably with experience in the Bathurst camp or other VMS camps elsewhere. A Partnership would provide low-risk access to exploration upside in a highly prospective base metal VMS mining camp, in the safe and secure mining jurisdiction of New Brunswick.

The claims collectively overlie seven zinc-lead sulphide mineralized occurrences, all of which remain open to exploration.

The majority of the 160 CARDS Targets remain to be explored.
