Zinc Town is the second town of the state of North. Small zinc deposits led colonists to naming the town this way in 1903. Nowadays, most people are employed in the forestry industry or the canning factory slightly east of the town. There are not many roads leading to the town, and because most of the countryside is not cultivated, visitors describe Zinc Town as isolated and beautiful.
The town recently expanded when a new neighborhood for 3,000 inhabitants was built west of the town, making it the second biggest town of the state. The town has a local museum detailing the history of both the area as well as the local Krai tribe currently residing in the town.
