Angel Eduardo Maza (born 18 December 1954) is an Argentine Justicialist Party (PJ) politician. He was the governor of La Rioja Province during several terms, until he was ousted by impeachment in 2007. His sister, Ada Maza, is a national senator.

Maza was educated at the National University of Cordoba and qualified as a geologist, later gaining a doctorate. He worked in the geological and mining services of the Government of Argentina and of La Rioja Province.

From 1985, Maza served as a minister in the provincial government of La Rioja under then governor Carlos Menem, continuing until 1992, when Menem, by now President of Argentina, appointed Maza as minister for mining, a position which he held until 1995.
