September 29, 2010 Vancouver, Canada -- El Niño Ventures Inc. ("ELN" and the "Company") (TSX.V: ELN; Frankfurt: E7Q) announces that it has re-filed its interim financial statements and management discussion and analysis ("MD&A") for the interim period ended July 31, 2009. In addition, the Company is currently in the process of re-filing its interim financial statements and MD&A for the interim period ended October 31, 2009. The following is a summary of the material revisions to the Company's amended and restated financial statements and MD&A.

The Company became aware that further unauthorized exploration/mining activities were being conducted on the Infinity Project by the Country Manager. The unauthorized activities being carried out by the Country Manager and the inability of the Company to assert control over its investment Infinity Resources SPRL ("Infinity") and Harmony Resources SPRL ("Harmony") and its local management caused the Company to conclude that it did not exercise control or significant influence over its investments in Infinity and Harmony during the year ended January 31, 2010. As a result, the Company determined that it should have derecognized the assets and liabilities of Infinity and Harmony effective February 1, 2009. Based on the foregoing, the Company concluded that the previously filed consolidated financial statements and MD&A for the periods ended April 30, 2009, July 31, 2009 and October 31, 2009, which were filed with SEDAR on June 29, 2009, September 29, 2009 and December 29, 2009, respectively, should no longer be relied upon. Accordingly, the Company's consolidated interim financial statements and MD&A for the six months ended July 31, 2009 filed on SEDAR on September 29, 2009 have been restated using the cost method rather than on a consolidated basis, the details of which are disclosed in the amended and restated financial statements. In addition, the Company is in the process of amending and restating the interim financial statements and MD&A for the interim period ended October 31, 2009 to reflect the above facts.
