VANCOUVER, Feb. 4, 2014 /CNW/ - Monument Mining Limited (TSX-V: MMY and
FSE: D7Q1) ("Monument" or the "Company") today cautioned its
shareholders not to be misled by GoldMet's misinformation.
Monument believes shareholders could benefit significantly from its
proposed magnetite operations on the Mengapur Project and that
GoldMet's criticism of this investment is unfounded and misleading.
"We need to set the record straight" commented George Brazier,
Monument's Chairman. Monument provided the following information to
correct the misinformation released by GoldMet:
As described in Monument's news releases of December 2, 2011 and January
17, 2013, the Company acquired a total 100% of the Mengapur Project;
however a 100% of oxide magnetite material contained in the soils was
retained by Malaco, the vendor of the project.
In the past two years since Monument's acquisition of the Mengapur
Project, third parties have been extracting, processing and selling
oxide magnetite contained in top soils on Area A and Area B of the
property and sharing profits with Malaco.
Monument has been working towards a profit-sharing arrangement with
respect to oxide magnetite material in top soils on Area C of the
Mengapur Project, which both parties agreed in its original definitive
agreement to negotiate in good faith.
Monument and Malaco entered into a binding Oxide Magnetite Stockpile
Purchase and Profit-Sharing Agreement on Area C in January 2014, and
the shares to be issued under this agreement are not entitled to be
voted at the Company's upcoming AGM.
In February 2013, Monument entered into a settlement agreement that
contained certain restrictions on the issuance of shares by Monument.
Monument limited the number of shares it has issued in compliance with
the settlement agreement, yet GoldMet continues to complain.
On January 27, 2014, Monument announced that it had filed a notice of
civil claim against GoldMet and Mr. Molyviatis in order to enforce the
terms of the settlement agreement. The Supreme Court of British
Columbia has indicated that it is not able to hold a summary trial to
hear the case, largely because of technical objections raised by
GoldMet preventing a hearing on the merits in advance of Monument's
Monument urges shareholders to exercise their franchise and vote only
the Management proxy in support of Monument's incumbent eight-person
board, which has been nominated for re-election. This Board intends to
continue to grow the Company's profitable mines in Malaysia and to
advance its projects there and elsewhere, creating sustainable and

dissidents seize your company for their own short-term gain.
