              Tony Beets

              Tony was born in Holland and raised on a farm. Before coming to Dawson City in 1984, he made ends meet by milking cows. From his humble origins, starting out as a lowly machine operator, Tony has now become one of the biggest miners in the Klondike.

              Tony was first introduced in season 2 of Gold Rush, where he advised Todd Hoffman that the secret to successful gold mining was drilling test holes.
