The few zinc along with the steel wheel weights I run across while smelting, I toss so sorry I can't help you out. I think most of the other casters here do the same. Suggest you try contacting some metals salvagers in your area.

How much do you need? Have you tried a zinc supplier? I found several on the interwebs.

PENNIES are made of zinc (I think anyway) but you'd have to use something to strip off the copper plating, I suppose. Some strong acid, maybe?

I have about 10-20 lbs of zinc weights you can have. I'm in Louisiana, PM me if you're interested.

Pennies have had zinc cores for thirty years now. You can tell the quality of the newer ones too..........
