    1) Fossicking is recreational prospecting, typically for gold or gemstones. In NZ, it is regulated by NZ Petroleum and Minerals (NZPAM), which is an agency of MBIE.

    2) Cornwall – Fossick comes from the cornish dialect and means “to ferret out”. This explains its other usage which is to rummage or search

    3) It regulates public fossicking for gold on Crown land

    4) 17

    5) Alas, none of the public gold fossicking areas are in the North Island

    I excerpted the “St Crispan’s day speech” from Henry V by William Shakespeare

    Rob Hosking got it all except he was a day out for St Crispan’s day which is the 25th of October
