We the Brawn family, a fifth generation active mining family, call our stores “Prospectors Plus” because we
wanted to do more than manufacture and sell gear.

We wanted to educate and show families a great way to enjoy your family, friends, and the great outdoors. We wanted folks to get out and
off the couch "plus" make friends and enjoy lifetime opportunities along the way.

Using advanced technology, in our USA made Brawn gear, we give you the
tools, knowledge and properties to legally and safely enjoy gold prospecting or rock-hounding, and gain memories and friends that will
​last forever.
