I received a Golden Pickaxe as a reward from a Tickington Sidequest in the Switch edition of Dragon Quest XI. It got sorted into my “Important Items” bag, so it’s not equipment, and it’s not a crafting item or consumable... but I’m not sure what it is for or does. The description in my inventory: A tool that can turn even an ordinary mining expedition into a bullion bonanza! isn’t very helpful either.

What’s this for?

It can reward you with an extra item whenever you "mine" those blue crystal structures. Take for example, the one outside of Hotto and the one near the Cryptic Crypt. Striking them will yield an additional ore.
