February 14, 2018 (Source) — Maxtech Ventures Inc. (CSE: MVT) (Frankfurt: M1N) (OTC: MTEHF), (“Maxtech” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Kiuso Corporation of Toronto, Canada and Kabwe, Zambia.
Maxtech and Kiuso Corporation have entered into a strategic cooperation agreement to form the foundation for business development opportunities enabling the joint exploration, evaluation, development and potential acquisition for manganese and other battery metals such as vanadium, in Zambia. The agreement provides a framework for the opportunity for Kiuso to be able to access projects currently under exploration by Kiuso or under negotiation that it may normally not be able to because of this strategic agreement. The term of the agreement is 5 years.
Zambia is a lucrative jurisdiction for copper and high grade manganese occurrences in pockets throughout the country. In addition to the metallic vanadates of lead, copper, and zinc, which occur in Namibia (southwest Africa) and Zambia, there are also large resources of vanadium-bearing ore in these jurisdictions. Finding vanadium when assaying manganese in Zambia is quite common and taking it into solution as a by-product may be a possibility as Maxtech explores for battery metals in the country.
Peter Wilson, CEO of Maxtech said, “This new strategic alliance in Zambia provides a unique opportunity for Maxtech to expand its established high grade manganese claims into other battery metals. The Company has begun research and preliminary due diligence on potential areas of interest with GeoQuest for acquisition in Zambia. With the addition of the Kiuso team on the ground, Maxtech will be able to evaluate opportunities quickly. ”
