The pickaxe was too heavy to carry at that point, so the two instead dragged it behind them. They were exhausted and in pain, but still determined to find out as much as possible about the place, mainly where they take the ore and what it is used for. Their best bet was observing the men with the wheelbarrows and watch where they go.
Reaching the surface, they got a better visual over the situation. The wheelbarrows full of ore and those full of rock went separate ways – they were loaded onto separate trains, heading separate directions, but they couldn't tell much more than that. Their minds were telling them to try and escape, but their bodies strongly disagreed. Escaping after a day and a half of work was near impossible. Their best bet was getting a hold of a wheelbarrow themselves and investigating some more.
The exit was in fact an entrance, only they now approached it from the other side, and all the procedures were exactly the same, only reversed. They first gave away the pickaxes, proceeded to the room with the baskets – that were empty – and hanged the linen bags onto the hooks, then went outside for the final check, turning their pockets inside out to prove they didn't take any of the ore.
