El Niño Ventures Inc. (“El Niño”) (TSX.V: ELN; OTCBB: ELNOF; Frankfurt: E7Q) is pleased to announce that a 23,000 m (75,000 ft) drill program has commenced on the Bathurst Zinc/Base Metals Mining Camp. The first of three drill rigs is already turning in the West Camp area, with two additional drill rigs ready to go in mid-October and early November.

About Titan 24: Deep Earth Imaging
The Titan 24 Deep Earth Imaging system is the most advanced electrical earth imaging technology to date. Titan 24 (See http://www.elninoventures.com/i/maps/map_attachment_oct112006.jpg) has been designed to serve the needs of exploration companies looking to make precise property evaluation decisions.
Titan 24 measures the parameters of DC (resistivity), IP (chargeability) and MT (magnetotelluric resistivity. This system can measure down to depths of 750 meters (2,460 feet) with IP, and can explore beyond 1.5 kilometers (down to about one mile) with MT data. These depths and multi-parameter data make the Titan 24 one of the best option available for obtaining pre-drilling information related to geological features at depth.
A partially completed MT/IP Titan 24 survey conducted over the “Brunswick Horizon”, between Brunswick No.12 and Brunswick No. 6 (past producer) indicated several interesting geophysical signatures that will require follow- up work and diamond drilling. MT/IP Titan 24 results over the Mount Fronsac North property indicate encouraging results while the Camel Back survey is presently in progress. According to Jean Luc Roy, President and CEO “The second drill rig is scheduled for mid-October to follow-up already targets in the Carboniferous area and the third drill will be brought in sometimes in early November as the final interpretations for these MT/IP Titan 24 surveys become available”.
