About Us

Maxtech Ventures is an early stage developer of mineral projects worldwide with a focus on near term manganese production

Building Through International Mining Properties

Maxtech Ventures Inc. is a Canadian based diversified industries company building through the acquisition of international mining properties.  The primary business focus has been the assembly and acquisition of key mineral projects for future exploration. Our goal is to become a force in the Green Energy Revolution first through the development of manganese deposits. The company intends to establish itself globally as a significant low-cost supplier of manganese to the burgeoning lithium battery industry.

Vision

The company is presently targeting mining properties in North Africa and South America which are rich in deposits. In Brazil alone Maxtech has positioned itself with more than 50,000 hectares of potential high grade Mn claims. Maxtech’s long term strategy is to build an international industrial minerals company to produce and sell manganese ore and processed Mn into the global markets of Europe, North America and Asia.

The company is presently targeting mining properties in North Africa and South America which are rich in deposits. In Brazil alone Maxtech has positioned itself with more than 57,000 hectares of potential high grade Mn claims. Maxtech’s long term strategy is to build an international industrial minerals company to produce and sell manganese ore and processed Mn into the global markets of Europe, North America and Asia.

The Company is focused on becoming a low-cost supplier of high grade manganese to global markets.

The market for manganese is three-fold: in fertilizer, it is an essential nutrient in photosynthesis creating greener crops; for steel production in the creation of alloys; and in high-grade form it is becoming more prevalent in the battery market.

Initial Focus

The Company’s initial project in Brazil is a large land package with assayed high grade manganese samples of 51.4% to 55.9% on 4 mineral claims of + 40,000 hectares in the State of Mato Grosso, Brazil.

Exploration in the state of Mato Grosso was designed to test the character and expand the size of colluvium showings that had been identified on the properties. Surface exploration by the prospecting team uncovered unknown manganese bearing clasts and cobbles. The pitting program consisted of hand dug pits and the contents were sifted with manganese bearing clasts separated and collected leaving the soil and other clasts behind. The pits were filled in and the surface returned to a natural state. The selected samples in this program were grab samples from the pits and were screened for testing. The analyses was done by SGS Geosol Laboratorios LTDA., Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

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.

Founded in 1946, Grupo Maringá now has over 2,000 employees with over USD $200 million in 2016 revenues. The Maringá companies are located in the states of Paraná and São Paulo. They produce sugar cane, sugar, ethanol, energy and manganese alloy. Maringá Ferro-Liga S.A. is a subsidiary of Grupo Maringá and is located in Itapeva, State of São Paulo. It is the second largest manganese ferroalloy producer in South America, producing high quality silico-manganese and high-carbon ferromanganese.
