Tony Beets is a Dutchman and legendary gold miner of the Klondike. He mvoed to Canada 25 years ago from Holland. When the Hoffman Group nearly has a mutiny, Todd Hoffman goes to Beets to get advice on finding gold. Beets told Todd that he must drill for the gold before he even attempts to dig. Todd took the advice and hired a man to drill in Quartz Creek. This meeting was documented in the episode "Drill or Die". He later gave advice to Parker Schnabel after he finished. He also owns the Scrivener Creek Claim that Parker Schnabel leases for season 4.
