Sourcing metals


I've been looking for magnesium for a while now but I really can't find any source for it where I live.
anyone got an idea on where can I magnesium metal ?
I know that it is used in car parts but what models/parts are made out of magnesium?

I have a significant amount of scrap that a casting company sent me for my senior thesis (the experiment was redesigned to not use molten magnesium, so right now it's just laying around). It's not pure (~90%), but what do you need it for?

Some of the larger boating supply stores will sell some magnesium anodes. I got a small one from West Marine some years ago.
