Max Juby was born in 1931 on a Quebec farm and graduated from McGill University. Most of his professional life was spent prospecting and exploring for gold and other minerals; this involved extensive travel and lengthy periods of time in and around small mining towns across Northern Canada (the “bush”). His principal employer was well-known Canadian mining entrepreneur J.P. (Pat) Sheridan Sr. Max is now retired and lives in Montreal with family.

In 1979, Max discovered his writing bug and has since written over 800 poems, some published on and some compiled in 20 books. He has written over 7,000 songs, singing and performing some 280 of them in various locations including Reno, Nevada and on YouTube. Max has had his website for 2 years and today, at age 90, continues his prolific production by writing two or three new songs every single day.

Max Juby at PDAC 2013

We found this video in the archives, with an interview at the 2013 Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (“PDAC”) convention, held in Toronto. He tells an interesting story (well, several) about his early prospecting years in the 1950s, and even sings one of his songs,

The interview was beside an escalator, so please excuse the Musak in the background, and some construction noise.
