Tony Beets net worth and salary: Tony Beets is a Canadian miner and reality television personality who has a net worth of $15 million dollars. Born in Wijdenes, Netherlands, Tony Beets worked for his family for many years, and then relocated to Canada to seek better career opportunities. After working in the construction business for three years, Tony began mining in Dawson City, in the Yukon Territory in 1984. Today he runs the Tamarack Mine, and is known for hiring local teenagers. Many either can't handle the work and quit, or are fired. Those that are able to hack it, become integral members of the team and his family. He has four children, all of whom work for the family business. He is one of the new miners featured on the reality television series, "Gold Rush". The show began airing on the Discovery Channel in 2010 and is now in its fourth season and has aired over 60 episodes. It has become one of the channel's most highly ranked series thanks to the larger than life personalities who appear on the show and dramatic tension that occurs every day at an active gold mine. Tony's wife Minnie is an integral part of the operation who helps handle the company's paperwork and accounting. His ultimate dream would be to have two highly producing mines running simultaneously.
The seventh season of Discovery's Gold Rush television series premiered in 2016. Beets was involved in controversy after his dredge pond was set on fire after being doused with gasoline. He was charged under the Yukon Waters Act for what was called a "Viking baptism". His employee who set the fire was ordered to pay a $1,725 fine.
