El Nino to survey DRC project from the air

2007-08-02 09:02 ET - News Release

 

Mr. Jean Luc Roy reports

 

EL NINO VENTURES TO COMMENCE AIRBORNE GEOPHYSICS, FOLLOWED BY INITIAL DRILL PROGRAM IN THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO (DRC)

El Nino Ventures Inc. has entered into an agreement with Aeroquest International Ltd. to fly airborne geophysics over its properties in the Democratic Republic of Congo. 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."

Thanks for posting Makkaroni. Appears those options were announced in the NR dated July 11th whereby 1.82 million options were allocated to officers, directors, employees and consultants to the company.

The number shown by INK is only 1,037 million so there's another 783,000 kicking around somewhere. Perhaps they are not yet all allocated. Lets write nice things about Jean Luc. Maybe we can get some freebies.....

 

Meanwhile, this thread is dead.

 

Oh, and by the way, Cormark who is leading broker for ELN's current placement is really Sprott Securities. They were big buyers this past month. Sprott Securities changed their name to Cormark last April. However, their exchange house number hasn't changed so perhaps that's why their trades keep showing as Sprott.

 

Reading threads elsewhere, it's apparent many also think Sprott Securites is Sprott Asset Management. It isn't and wasn't. When they discover the Sprott they talk about hasn't existed for awhile, they'll really be confused.

 

Keep your head down, Makkaroni. It's a tough market these days.

 

Happily time will soon be ripe for ELN. Lots of fun.

El Nino Ventures Inc to start 5,000 meter drill program on their Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Properties

 

VANCOUVER, Aug. 20, 2007 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX News Network) --

 

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 DrillAfrica Company Limited, to complete a minimum of 5,000 meters of drilling over its properties in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). This program is scheduled to start in mid September.

 

Jean Luc Roy, President of El Nino states, "We are very pleased to announce to our shareholders that we have secured a drill rig to start our initial drill program in the DRC. This program will consist of a minimum of 5,000 meters of Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling to test the anomalies identified in our remote sensing survey that was carried out previously.

 

Our geological team will be on the ground by the end of August to prepare the drill sites and set up the camp necessary to carry out this program. I will personally be in the DRC from the 10th of September onwards to ensure that all is in place to successfully carry out this program. Our whole team has worked hard to get all the equipment necessary to the DRC so that everything is in place for this program. The rainy season in the DRC starts around mid-November so we will be in a position to complete a minimum of 5,000 meters before the rains arrive.

 

When we acquired these properties our goal was to fast-track our exploration efforts and we have delivered on this objective."

Zinc in Ireland???

 

With hindsight it would appear that this is the position into which Jean-Luc Roy wanted to get the company when he joined last year. He does not argue with this, but says that the company will be announcing its involvement in zinc in Ireland shortly and has no plans to go to Eastern Europe as indicated on its website.
