One, actually the most successful gold mining crew in the reality TV show Bering Sea Gold is that of Pomrenke Mining. They own both the Christine Rose and Shamrock high-line dredges. Pomrenke Mining is a family business whose bosses are father and son, Steve and Shawn Pomrenke.
Shawn Pomrenke is Steve Pomrenke firstborn and the older brother of Erick Pomrenke. His nickname is Mr. Gold. Shawn is often in disagreement with his dad regarding how to run their business. Despite he has done great business to earn an incredible net worth and salary for his age. Learn about it as well as his married life with wife.

Shawn might be good at gold mining, but he’s terrible at relationships. The relationship scandals flooding the web involving him are too many to overlook.
Now, if you remember, back in 2012, a Jenny Schield made an appearance on Bering Sea Gold season 1 as Shawn’s fiance and was seen nursing him back to health after a bar brawl gone wrong. The episode made it look like as if Jenny was the perfect girl for him to get married to and make his wife.
So, did they get married? A Jim Wilke while trying to enlighten us about the personal lives of the Bering Sea Gold Cast in a blog post, got some facts wrongs about Shawn.
And Jenny wasn’t happy about that and quickly corrected him in the comments section. From her response, we learn that Shawn has five kids from four women and he left her on the altar on their wedding day and taped a ‘wedding canceled’ sign on the door. Ouch! So it looks like Jenny is not his wife and never will be by the looks of it.
Jim tells us that Shawn had once married one of the women he had kids with, a statement Jenny did not contend. Most wiki bios speculate the woman in question was his longtime girlfriend and mother to his son Dylan Pomrenke.
However the two most probably got a divorce since Shawn boldly told a fan during a Q&A session on Reddit, he has no wife. His kids are Dylan, Emily, Catherine, Luke Pomrenke and one other supposed child.
Shawn Pomrenke Net Worth
Shawn has been a part of a successful gold mining dynasty since childhood. He even dropped out of school and dedicated his whole life to gold prospecting and mining. Pomrenke Mining has had a lot of wins throughout the years mining millions worth of gold.
Other than gold mining, his other source of income is from his TV career where he is rumored to receive $200,000 per season. Shawn is also said to bank an annual salary of $450,000 and has an estimated net worth of $5 million. His net worth may look surprising, but it must be nothing for someone who mines gold.
His net worth is also supplemented by the TV career that earns him an uncertain amount of salary. All in all his financial condition looks good based on his net worth and salary alone.age
Shawn Driving Under the Influence
It would seem whenever alcohol is involved, Shawn gets in trouble. Soon after the bar brawl that left him with severe knife wounds, Shawn got busted for DUI in 2013. It wasn’t his first DUI either, the first time he hit a pedestrian and fled and was consequently ordered not to drive without an Ignition Interlock Device (IID).
And as for the second DUI, Shawn was driving at 102 MPH and blew .156. BAC which is about twice the 0.08 legal limit. The cops also found out that he had not installed the IID and therefore impounded his car. In his court hearing, Shawn was sentenced to 6 months but walked out in less than two weeks.
Shawn’s teeth and braces
People can be unapologetically cruel in finding faults with someone’s physical features. And Shawn has faced ridicule due to his teeth. Some people have referred to them as nasty which is probably why Shawn never shows his teeth while smiling. Is he using braces? Hard to tell.
His Wiki Bio, Age, and Career
Shawn was born on the 26th of March 1975 and just recently turned 43 years of age. He attended Beltz High School but dropped out of school to start gold mining at the age of 14.
Later in his mining career, he and his dad were approached by TV producers who wanted to document their gold mining ventures in Bering Sea Gold and Bering Sea Gold: Under The Ice. His TV career debuted soon after in 2012. Interestingly, Shawn claims he doesn’t watch the show. He is currently the owner of Pomrenke Mining.
