  1. I am currently living in the Australian Goldfields where there are many references to fossicking generally and every weekend armies of fossickers ramble through the remnants of 1850s gold mines for small lumps and nuggets missed by the original diggers (an Aussie word for gold-miners which became synonomous with Australians generally). Fossicking is at the heart of Australian culture.
