The pickaxe is the primary tool used in mining ores and rocks. Some Ore Deposits required stronger Pickaxe to mine them though.


Pickaxes are used to harvest rocks, which include ores and minerals. When blocks are broken, rocks, small stones or ores contained in chunks of stone will be dropped. Ores inside rocks have to be crushed with a hammer, place both in the Crafting Grid to obtain smeltable nuggets.


Pickaxes can be stored in containers and placed on tool racks.
