what happened to tony beets daughter jasmine
Jasmine Beets (15 December 1992-1 March 1993) died due to extra chromosome
The Jasmine tattoo is in honor of Minnie and Tony’s daughter who passed away at a very young age. You can find out more about that sad event, as well as the rest of Tony’s amazing story, by catching last week’s special episode of Gold Rush titled “Klondike Legend.”
Tony Beets is as legendary in the Klondike for his gold finding skills as he is for his colorful language. Before Tony came to Dawson City in 1984, he made ends meet by milking cows, then working in pipeline construction. Tony is a hard-nosed businessman who now runs an enormous gold mine near Dawson City called Paradise Hill. In the off-season Tony and his family live in Arizona.
Tony first featured in season two, where he advised greenhorn Todd Hoffman that the secret to successful gold mining was to drill test holes. Tony reappeared in season four leasing land to Parker Schnabel, who he mentored through his rookie season of gold mining in the Klondike.
A force to be reckoned with, after pulling in 737oz with his dredge last season Tony is firing on all cylinders. Not only is he planning to pull in serious gold with his dredge, he’s gone and bought another one.
This season Tony is going to have to juggle his mining operations, ensuring Paradise Hill and his dredge are running smoothly all while shipping his latest purchase, a second huge dredge, 100 miles along the Yukon river.
