Civilopedia entry[]

Since the 19th century discovery of Australian gold, prospectors have long sought their fortune in antipodean ground. Unlike fossickers (who sift mullock heaps for gold, silver, or opal as recreation), striking it rich is within the grasp of these “professionally amateur” miners—as long as they stake the right claim.
