What is Tony Beets’ net worth?
Tony has a net worth of $15 million, and is currently thought to be the richest Gold Rush cast member.
His co-star Parker Schnabel comes in as the second richest cast member, with a net worth of $8 million.
Before he got into gold mining, Tony made a living milking cows in Holland.
Then in 1984, he began searching for gold in Dawson City, within the Yukon Territory, and found 3,600 ounces of gold in Eureka Creek in just 2018.
That amount of gold was worth around $4.39 million! Tony is now thought to make roughly $25,000 per episode of Gold Rush.
Tony Beets’ house explored
Tony, known as one of the biggest miners in the Klondike, lives in a new Paradise Hill house with his wife Minnie.
They had to move there after having to leave their Indian River operation.
Described by fans are “humble millionaires”, they built the house 30 miles north of the area, which has incredible views from its wooden balcony.
Minnie’s favorite part of the house is her reclining chair in the living room, while Tony’s appears to be the toilet – which “come in different heights”.
He also bought a large dredge located on Clear Creek for $1 million in season 5 to have it up and running at his new location.
