My two miners in Dwarf Fortress dropped their pickaxes



  • My two miners dropped their pickaxes on the floor below right on the stairs. And now they can't mine the area I wanted them to. It's the start of the game and I don't want to have to make a new world.



  • Couple of options:

    1. Assign two other dwarves the mining labor, they should go grab the picks. If so, then something has happened to your miners - perhaps they're injured somehow?

    2. Make sure the picks are forbidden/marked for dumping or smelting or something.

    3. Make sure the miners didn't get activated as soldiers with kits that prevent picks.

    As a final option you can try building a weapons stockpile and get the picks moved there - if they don't go, then something is preventing dwarves from interacting with the picks themselves.
