What happens to public fossicking areas once the expire?

They’ll probably just keep getting renewed. But if they did expire I imagine it’ll be the same as any other claim - anyone can put a claim on the area for themselves.

@harry.kiwibloke Because I noticed that some of these were about to expire last month, I rang NZP&M and asked the question, they advised me they will all be renewed. Good News for us !!!
