Pickaxes are useful mining tools, and are the only way to get ores, with the exception of 'Copper'. To mine an ore, simply equip your pickaxe, stand near its deposit, and click directly on the piece of ore you want to mine. Continue clicking until the ore disappears. If your pickaxe does not swing, press '
