Zinc's ore is called sphalerite, and can be found at relatively shallow depths. Sphalerite cannot spawn on the surface. Sphalerite deposits may be found in nearly any rock layer except for bauxite.
On its own, zinc ingots can be smelted into zinc plates, for use in Archimedes screws.
Sphalerite nuggets can be mixed with various metals in a crucible to be smelted into ingots of various alloys.
