Looking to mine some gold, grab your pickaxe. The pick emoji shows a pickaxe with a long skinny handle and a head with two sharp pointed ends. The pick emoji is often associated with excavation and mining. It’s a construction tool used to break up hard rocks that block access to minerals like natural gas, gold, silver, and even oil. Use this emoji when talking about mining. Example: Joe, grab the ⛏ and bring it over here. These rocks are blocking the path to the gold.
