Laurel Hill Congratulates Monument Mining for a Successful Outcome at Their Annual General Meeting of Shareholders

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA and NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK -- (Marketwired) -- 02/13/14 -- Laurel Hill Advisory Group congratulates Monument Mining Limited on the successful outcome at its Annual General Meeting held on February 7, 2014 in Vancouver, B.C. The meeting had a record high turnout of shareholders representing approximately 75% of its issued shares eligible to vote at the meeting. As noted below, shareholders at the meeting approved, among other things, the fixing of the number of directors at seven and the election to the Board of the seven Monument nominees who received the most votes. When the submitted management and dissident proxies were tabulated, a large majority supported the management nominees - despite the Company's largest shareholder, GoldMet B.V., supporting the dissident slate of directors.

"We'd like to thank the shareholders for their support and look forward to continuing to work on the growth and development of the Company and its mining projects with this support," said Robert F. Baldock, Monument's President and CEO. "Everyone worked very hard to achieve our success at the meeting. We greatly appreciate the efforts of the Laurel Hill Advisory Group, our proxy solicitor, in ensuring that the Company's shareholders were heard."

"We were pleased to contribute to the success of Monument's contested meeting," added David Salmon, Laurel Hill's Senior Vice President. "Working with Monument's team on an ongoing basis was very beneficial in generating the record results. Clearly, these positive results demonstrate the confidence the shareholders have in the Board and management of Monument Mining."

Further information concerning the results of the meeting is set out below.

Board of Directors

At the meeting, shareholders elected the following of management's nominees as directors for the ensuing year: George Brazier, Robert F. Baldock, Cathy Zhai, Zaidi Harun, Gerald Ruth, Frank Wright and Graham Dickson. Director nominee Jean-Edgar de Trentinian received the fewest "for" votes of the eight management nominees. Given the shareholder-approved motion to set the number of directors at seven, Mr. de Trentinian was not elected to the Board.

Auditor

Shareholders re-appointed Grant Thornton LLP, Chartered Accountants, to serve as the Company's auditors for the ensuing year and authorized the directors to fix the auditor's compensation.

Stock Option Plan and Grant of Stock Options

The adoption by the Company of a fixed stock option plan, as described in the Information Circular disseminated in connection with the meeting, was approved by shareholders. The grant by the Company of additional stock options was not approved.
