TABLE-Kazakhstan's January-August copper, zinc output rises, steel down

    ALMATY, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan's January-August
refined copper output inched up 0.2 percent year-on-year and
refined zinc production rose 0.8 percent while crude steel
output fell 0.5 percent, Statistics Committee data showed on

mill in Temirtau.

Kazakhstan's non-ferrous, steel and precious metals output in
