VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - July 06, 2017) - Maxtech Ventures Inc. (CSE: MVT) (CSE: MVT.CN) (CNSX: MVT) (FRANKFURT: M1N) (OTC PINK: MTEHF), ("Maxtech" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Maringá Ferro-Liga S.A of Brazil.

Maxtech's goal is to become a diversified mining company with a high-grade manganese footprint. The primary business program has been the assembly and acquisition of key mineral projects for future exploration. In Brazil, Maxtech has positioned itself with more than 50,000 hectares of potential high grade Mn mineralization claims, as previously disclosed in its release of May 4th 2017. The Company's long term strategy is to grow organically by building a vertical mining operation to sell high-grade manganese to global markets focused on renewable energy, steel production and fertilizers with Mn additives to increase plant/crop fertility.

Maxtech has entered into an agreement with Maringá Ferro-Liga to enable the joint evaluation, exploration and potential acquisition of project specific manganese assets in Brazil, and if justified, to engage in the development and mining of specific claims. Maxtech and Maringa will sign project-specific agreements between the parties prior to engaging in any operations on properties.The agreement shall have a term of 3 years and is non-exclusive.

Peter Wilson, CEO Maxtech said, "Maringá is a diversified industry leader in the uses of manganese in Brazil, making it the perfect partner for Maxtech. Under this association Maxtech hopes to develop more than an exploration partner, enabling the Company to explore, mine and distribute manganese in Brazil with an industry leader."

Luis Pessoa, Commercial Director from Maringá Ferro-Liga said, "Having a reliable and local source of high grade manganese ore is an important competitive advantage to Maringá. The cooperation agreement with Maxtech enables us to profit from their well recognized know-how to research and explore potential areas in Brazil."
