Tony was raised in the farms of Holland, and before reaching the heights he is currently in, he used to milk cows to make a living. The 61-year-old came to Dawson City, Canada, in 1984 to work on paradise hill. This man shows his bold looks and is prominent for starring in “Gold Rush”, a series aired on the Discovery channel.
It is a long-run series that started in 2010, with its first episode premiered on December 3rd. Ever since, it has gained worldwide recognition and massive troops of fans. The show’s last episode, “Last Gold” aired on March 2nd, 2020. With the show gaining prominence, fans have been eager to know more about the star cast and their lives. This gave rise to the question of what is Tony Beet’s net worth, and that’s exactly what we’re going to be talking about. Bear with us for a bit to get into details.
This larger-than-life Dutchman, as described by the official site of “Gold Rush” is one of the famous cast of the top-ranked series. This Dutch personality runs his operations in Klondike and is among the best and biggest miners. Another interesting thing to know about this human is that because of Beets’ tendency for swearing, his language is frequently bleeped out on the program, earning him the moniker “Tony Peep” in his city.
Tony, at the start, was featured in season 2 of the series, where he advises Todd Hoffman of the Hoffman group when they are about to face a mutiny. Tony’s advice became a lifesaver for Todd as he followed his instructions of hiring someone to drill the Quartz Creek. The whole of the process was filmed and documented in the ‘Drill or Die’ episode of the season. Tony also was seen in series 4 advising Parker Schnabel and give him land to lease. All through, he was seen to be mentoring Paul in his new season of mining in Klondike.
Many years before relocating, Tony worked by milking cows and made ends meet for his family. Beets commenced mining in Dawson City of the Yukon Territory, in 1984 after working in the construction industry for 3 years. He currently owns and operates the Tamarack Mine, and is well-known for employing local youth and teenagers. Many people can’t manage the work, but those who do become valuable people in the group and the Beets family.
In the Klondike, Tony feels that old-fashioned dredging is the way to go. He started hauling in huge gold last season after successfully launching his first historic dredging at Eureka Creek. Tony then hyped it up to spend a million dollars for a second dredge but was unable to dismantle it. He even bought a huge dredging site located in the Klondike region of Yukon territory, Clear Creek. He spent $1 million to buy it in season 5 of the series.
