One of the new generation miners, Kevin Beets certainly knows his stuff. Trained by the legendary Tony Beets, Kevin is one of Tony’s three children who are working in the mining business. At just 32-years of age, Kevin commands a massive group of miners, some of whom are even twice his age. Equipped with a degree in computer science and leadership, Kevin certainly knows how to keep things fresh and continue. Contrary to his father, Kevin wants to introduce modern means of dredging in the mines and maximize the team’s output. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Kevin Beets.
Kevin Beets was born on the 10th of June, 1988. Born to Tony and Minnie Beets, Kevin is the oldest of the Beets bunch. He has a younger brother, Mike Beets born in 1990, and a younger sister, Monica Beets, born in 1993. Raised in a mining family, Kevin started working on mines ever since he was 13-years of age. From the age of 19, Kevin has been leading crews into mines and has gathered a wealth of experience. Following his graduation from a local high school, Kevin earned a degree in Leadership from the University of New Brunswick (UNB). He also worked for a degree year in Computer Science at UNB and is currently looking to bring his knowledge into mining.
Tony has always been working under his father as a part of the Beets Crew. His first major challenge came in 2011 when he was tasked to lead the Eureka Camp site for three years. He worked on the site until 2013, before joining his father at the main dredge.
While Kevin is by no means a shabby leader, his true abilities lie elsewhere. A master of machinery operation, Kevin enjoys working with heavy machinery. But even more than that, Kevin enjoys welding, fabricating, and mechanic work. To him, mechanic work is not only satisfying but also motivating. Even though Kevin enjoys working with his family, it doesn’t been he has no complaints. Kevin regularly gets into argument with his sister, Monica, to discuss the best way to work on a certain thing. On the other hand, Kevin has been quite candid about the huge level of expectation that comes with being the son of Tony Beets. But regardless of all the nuances, Kevin enjoys being and working with his family.
