According to Wikipedia, a Fossicker or Fossicking is a term found in Cornwall, Australia and New Zealand referring to prospecting, especially in more recent times, when carried out as a recreational activity. This can be for gold, precious stones, fossils, etc. by sifting through a prospective area.
In South Australia, fossicking is defined as 1. To search for gold, especially by reworking gold washings or waste piles. 2. To rummage or search, for a possible profit and also non profit. 3. Primary word for the gold prospector and prospecting Down Under!

Welcome to my new Blog. I guess you could call this an extension of my website www.fossickers.com. The difference between my website and blog would be that various subjects can be discussed here, including other items that wouldn’t fit very well into the website agenda. Another item that will make the Blog different is the readers ability to comment about the subject matter being presented. Some of the subject matter to be presented in the future will be from other folks other than myself – in fact I encourage others to participate on this Blog. Meantime, visit my website to check out my latest products and also follow us to read when there is something new on my Blog Roll.
