Mike Beets On Gold Rush
Mike Beets, son of Tony Beets, is following his father to carry on the family trade of gold mining. He and his siblings are first-generation immigrants as his father grew up in the Netherlands. So, it was only natural that he got introduced to the business when he was very young.
In fact, Mike has been working with his father since he was only 13 years old, full-time. According to his Discovery bio, “he’s the best when it comes to operating massive machinery. If something on the mine needs shifting Mike is the one to do it – whether it be in a dozer, Oshkosh, or a 40-ton crane.”
The bio reads further, “Mike is also a master on the water and is a fully qualified skipper. When he’s not working, he enjoys taking part in medieval combat tournaments.”
Basically, fans have deemed Michael to be a problem solver but some problems have arisen, according to the show’s recent clip. According to Distractify from the exclusive clip that they obtained, Tony believed Mike would handle it when a Trommel broke down in the middle of the day.
“Mike, do you copy? Mike, do you copy?” his father repeatedly asked as he headed to the Paradise Hill mine to check out the broken-down Trommel. The reality star reports to his father that another person told him the Trommel wouldn’t move. As he commands the Gold Rush camera team to “get out of my face and leave,” his irritation is obvious.
When Tony tries to contact Mike again, Mike responds like a spoiled child, “No, I do not,” when asked whether he copies. Tony requests Kevin, his other son, to “fix this piece of s–t” and mend it. Mike won’t feel good about that, and it will simply make the already tense situation worse.
Tony puts Mike in his car, and the two swiftly travel to a different area of the mine. Mike receives a lecture from Tony reminding him that he cannot give up when things become tough. Even while Mike will always be his son, he still has to deal with the fact that he works for him. Tony is successful because he is effective and straightforward.
If what Mike was doing is no longer possible, he fully anticipates Mike will take another action. For Tony, time management is everything. He assigns Mike to be in charge of the sluicing and stripping before departing to fetch a drink.
How Much Is Mike Beets Net Worth?
Mike Beet’s net worth varies from source to source, but he sits reportedly under $500 thousand. Whereas, his father with his years of work as a gold miner has been able to garner a total net worth of $15 million. Mike participates regularly in knightly swordfights and is a reenactor of the medieval era who wears a 60 lb. complete set of armor.
He took up the role of Paradise Hill manager during season 6. However, Mike worked there as the night manager the season prior. He frequently drives an Oshkosh and is in charge of moving bulky items into and out of the mine.

Mike Beets Family
Mike Beets was born as one of the three children of Tony and Minnie Beets. His parents recently celebrated their 42nd wedding anniversary in December 2022. Tony and Minnie got married when the former was 24 and the latter was 23.
When they were children, the two were neighbors in Burgwerd, Friesland, and their romance started in 1978. After 18 months of dating, Tony decided he wanted to move to Canada. Minnie accompanied him on this decision. They have four children: Kevin, Monica, and Bianca. They also had a daughter, Jasmine, who tragically passed away in 1992 at the age of only 2 1/2 months.
Tony is a Dutch-born Canadian miner and reality television personality who was born in Wijdenes, Netherlands.
Tony is referred to as a “maverick mining legend” and “a larger-than-life Dutchman who leads one of the biggest businesses in the Klondike” on the official “Gold Rush” website. Because of his propensity for swearing, Beets’ vocabulary is frequently bleeped out on the show, earning him the moniker “Tony Peep” in his hometown.
All of the Beets children work in the family business, and Minnie is in charge of the bookkeeping and paperwork. The Arizona winter home of Tony and Minnie is owned by Beets, who is also said to own a Mercedes convertible valued at about $145,000.
After a 2015 “Gold Rush” episode featured one of his workers dousing his dredge pond with gasoline and setting it on fire, Tony found himself in hot water. For what was referred to as a “Viking baptism,” he was charged under the Yukon Waters Act, and the worker who poured the gasoline was made to pay a $1,725 fine.
