MBMI Receives FTAA Cancellation Notice

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 19, 2011) -MBMI RESOURCES INC. ("MBMI" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MBR) announces that our legal team in the Philippines has been notified that the Office of the President of the Philippines has issued a decision (the "Decision") cancelling the Financial and Technical Assistance Agreements ("FTAAs").

The FTAAs were signed by the authority of the President of the Philippines pursuant to Philippine law on April 12, 2010 and were registered with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources on May 31, 2010 and formally issued on June 2, 2010 to affiliates of MBMI, Narra Nickel Mining & Development Corp., Tesoro Mining and Development Inc., and McArthur Nickel Mining. This Decision is in connection with a case filed by Redmont Consolidated Mines Corp.

The Company on advice of its legal counsel believes that the decision is not in accordance with legal actions of a similar nature previously settled by the Supreme Court of the Philippines. MBMI has instructed its legal counsel to immediately file a Motion for Reconsideration with the Office of the President. The Company will also file immediate actions with the appropriate courts seeking to overturn the Decision.

MBMI will vigorously fight this Decision and defend the Company's affiliate's legally issued FTAAs. The company has commenced curtailment of non-essential activities and will continue activities that conform to Philippine Law while defending its rights and legally issued permits.
