Smash up ore deposits to receive ore. (left), Upgrading your Pickaxe will improve the rarity of your ore. (right)
The pickaxe can be used to mine ore in caves etc. You will receive a pickaxe midway through Main Quest 5. Like the axe, simply attack a highlighted ore deposit to receive ore from them.
To upgrade your pickaxe, you must build/upgrade the Tool Shop, which is possible after completing the Profit Chasing quest (available from Main Quest 7).
After upgrading your pickaxe, you can obtain rarer ore from the same deposits (some deposits only have one type of ore).
