Press Release

MAX Power Corporate Update as “MAXX” Makes Debut on CSE

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, February 18, 2022MAX Power Mining Corp. (“MAX Power” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide a corporate update after trading of its common shares commenced Wednesday, February 16, 2022 on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) under the symbol “MAXX”.

Highlights:

• Drill crews will be mobilizing to the Nicobat Property in early March to carry out a program that will test geophysical conductors potentially related to massive sulphide mineralization;

• Due diligence is being carried out on multiple properties to potentially add another project to the Company’s portfolio;

• Mark Scott, who has a strong track record of success with both senior and junior mining companies, has joined the MAX Power Board of Directors.

Mr. Rav Mlait, CEO of MAX Power, commented: “On behalf of the Board and the entire team at MAX Power, I’m very excited that we are now a publicly traded company on the CSE through a successful initial public offering (IPO) that raised $1.5 million. This is a significant milestone in the development of MAX Power after it was launched as a private exploration entity in early 2021. We have a dynamic retail shareholder base and a team dedicated to success both on the ground and in the market.”

Mr. Mlait continued, “Our immediate focus is the under-explored Nicobat Project in Northwest Ontario’s Rainy River district, host to New Gold’s Rainy River gold mine. Nicobat is our listing property acquired from Sassy Resources which currently owns 18% of MAX Power. Our upcoming drill program will be targeting high-grade nickel-cobalt-copper-PGE mineralization based on geophysical conductors never previously tested at Nicobat. The Company is also evaluating additional potential high impact opportunities in the broader resource space that could be a strategic fit for MAX Power during this commodity bull cycle.

“We welcome Mark Scott to our Board of Directors. He’s an accomplished industry veteran who was Vice President of Vale Canada and head of its Manitoba Nickel Division before becoming the founding CEO for three successful juniors – Sassy Resources Corporation (“Sassy”), Gander Gold Inc. (a reporting issuer to be listed on the CSE) and privately held Galloper Gold Corp. Mark will help us immensely as we leverage MAX Power’s advantages to the max,” Mr. Mlait concluded.
