Josh Turpin's Bio

High Plains Prospectors is an authorized, multi-line metal detector dealer and gold prospecting shop who also helps people in the local market recover lost valuables. We have an excellent track record for finding lost jewelry and a 90%+ recovery ratio. (And, quite often, if we don't find it, the person eventually realizes they didn't even lose it in the first place!)
