Tony Beets is a renowned miner with an even legendary beard. He came to prominence from the reality television series, Gold Rush.
The show which aired for the first time on the Discovery Channel in 2010, has slowly become a firm fan favorite and is now one of the channel's most highly ranked series. That is due to the real yet dramatic incidents caused by the stars, including Tony during the gold mining.
To find out more about the man with a long beard, here are some riveting wikis about him, ranging from his bio, net worth, to his family life:
1. Tony Beets Worked In Family Farm At Early Age
Born in Wijdenes, Netherlands, on 15 December 1959 (age 59 as of August 2018) Tony Beets, for many years, worked for his family. Unfortunately, things weren’t working out for well for him and his family.
Because of which, he had to make his ends meet by milking cows in his family farm, and working in the pipeline construction business for about three years until finally relocating to Canada in search for better career opportunities.
After relocating and putting his construction years behind, Tony ultimately found his passion for mining in Dawson City, in the Yukon Territory in 1984.
2. What is Tony Beets' Networth?
After rising to fame from the Discovery's reality television series Gold Rush, the reality star has accumulated the enormous net worth of $15 million.
On 25 August 2017, Tony's company called Tamarack Inc. was fined with the lump of $31,000 by the Yukon territorial court for violating its water license. The amount seems so little compared to his massive net worth!
3. How Tony Met His Future Wife Minnie Beets?
Tony first met Minnie when his family moved into the farm next door to hers, in Burgwerd, Friesland. He was 7 years of age whereas she was six years of age at that time. They started dating soon when Minnie was just 20 years of age.
After spending 18 months together, Tony decided to leave for Canada, seeking better employment. However, as Minnie couldn’t go Netherland because of her young age, the pair decided to get married. Soon after, they flew to Canada.
4. Tony Beets Family Revealed: 4 Children, 1 Died

Of their five kids, the youngest daughter Jasmine was born in 1992 and died 2 and a half years later due to health-related complications.
5. Tony Beets Daughter Monica Is Also Gold Hunter
The business of mining is usually linked to men; as soon as you think about mining, you don’t think about women, you think about men. That was the same case for Tony. People thought that his two sons or maybe one of them at least would be the ones to carry on the mantle. However, it was his daughter, Monica, who took after her father’s gold mining business.
His daughter works 12-hours a day, and when she looks at the gold that she and her team have dug up, she finds relief in watching the fruit of her labor.
6. Minnie Beets: The Woman Behind Tony’s Success
Minnie was his only partner who accompanied Tony when he was leaving his native land to go somewhere he didn't know what behold for him. The recently married couple knew that they had just each other for support and had to build up everything from the scratches.
The husband and wife duo had to explore every option, before finally settling upon gold mining. Minnie supported every decision her husband made was always by his side during the times of distress.
And now that the future is here--the couple have not only been together for 60 years but also living the lives of millionaires thanks to their previous hardships.
His wife, Minnie has been a massive contributor towards it; she not just handles the company's paperwork and accounting but she also takes care of their rapidly growing children. Alongside their daughter, his wife helps him to run the business---his family pushes him towards his dream to have two highly producing mines.
