What to do when you really don’t find metal ore

In one of my games, I can’t seem to find metallic ore. I’ve dug to the -20 floor, hit 2 caverns, and I’ve dug horizontally and vertically to.

Some of the stuff you usually build from metal can be built from other materials (mechanisms, for example) but what about the other stuff?

Answer

If you have Bauxite or another magma safe stone: Dig until you find magma, direct some magma to a prepared pool in a controlled manner and base your industry on Obsidian. Mine the obsidian, refill the pool with water, than magma again and repeat as needed.
