Monument Enters into Definitive Agreement
for Acquisition of 70% of Mengapur Polymetalic Project in Malaysia

Release #19 - 2011

Vancouver, B.C., Monument Mining Limited (TSX-V: MMY and FSE: D7Q1) (�Monument� or the �Company�)is pleased to announce that the Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Monument Mengapur Sdn. Bhd. (�MMSB�) in Malaysia, has entered into the Definitive Acquisition Agreement with Diamond Hard Mining Sdn. Bhd., its shareholders  and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Cermat Aman Sdn. Bhd. (�CASB�) and Malaco Mining Sdn. Bhd. (�Malaco�) (collectively the �Malaco Group�), all incorporated in Malaysia, to acquire 70% of the Mengapur Polymetalic Project (the �Mengapur Project� or the �Project�) located in Pahang State, Malaysia. The acquisition remains subject to financing, shareholders� and regulatory approvals.

Under terms of the Definitive Acquisition Agreement, MMSB will pay US$60,000,000 in cash and issue 300 MMSB shares (representing 30% interest in MMSB) to Malaco in exchange for a 100% interest in CASB, the company that holds 100% of the Mengapur Project, except for certain magnetite materials contained in the soils. Of the total consideration, US$10,000,000 is to purchase iron ore materials contained within the skarn which were originally going to remain with the Malaco Group under the terms of the binding Memorandum of Understanding. A deposit of US$500,000 was paid to Malaco upon signing of the Definitive Acquisition Agreement, and US$4,500,000 was set up as Escrow Fund in securing the Mengapur Project. Upon closing of the acquisition, total US$5,000,000 shall applied against the purchase price. In the event that the acquisition does not closed by January 31, 2012, US$4,500,000 shall become a loan to Malaco.

Robert Baldock, President and CEO of the Company stated upon signing the Definitive Acquisition Agreement: �I am very pleased to announce the signing of the Definitive Acquisition Agreement for the Mengapur Project. The Project is expected to bring significant value to our shareholders and to the regional economy, as well as a new challenge to Monument�s enthusiastic management. We plan to make a significant capital investment to develop the Project further. We will be carrying out a resource update, open pit mine design, and design and development of a group of processing facilities. We also plan to continue exploration with a substantial drilling program inthe Mengapur region. Given all of this we will be a major player and able to positively impact the local economy and prosperity�.

The Mengapur Acquisition shallbe closed in conjunction with completion of the previously announced private placement of up to $70,000,000. Subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the �Exchange�), the private placement will now be comprised of up to 140,000,000 units at a price of $0.50 per unit.  Each unit will consist of one common share and one common share warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.70 per share for a period of 36 months from the closing of the private placement. The Company engaged Procter Advisers Ltd SA (�Procter�) to prove advisory services for the Private Placement. Subject to Exchange acceptance, the Company shall pay Procter an advisory fee equal to 10% of the gross proceeds of the Private Placement and advisory�s warrants equal to 10% of the total units issued in the Private Placement.

The proceeds of the private placement will be used for the acquisition and development of the Mengapur Project and for general working capital.�With widespread concern of the second globe recession and European debt crisis, we would like to use our best effort to ensure the Project is adequately funded to prevent our shareholders from being exposed to financial risk.� Cathy Zhai, CFO of the Company, said.

The Mengapur Project is located in Central Malaysia in the State of Pahang,approximately 130 kilometers from Monument�s wholly owned Selinsing Gold Mine near Sri Java, 12 kilometers from a highway and 75 kilometers from the Malaysian port of Kuantan. It was first discovered by a drilling program carried out by the Geological Survey of Malaysia. Historical economic and resource estimates on the Mengapur Project were completed and published as a �Definitive Feasibility Study� (the �Study�) in October 1990 by Normet Engineering Pty Ltd with James Askew Associates completing the historical ore reserve and resource estimates, both of Perth, Western Australia. The Company filed on SEDAR today a NI 43-101 compliant Technical Report on the Mengapur Project prepared by Snowden Mining Industry Consultants, which includes a description of the Study. The Technical Report is available on the Company�s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com .
