TABLE-Kazakhstan Jan-July copper, zinc output up; steel down

    ALMATY, Aug 21 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan's refined copper
output rose 13.4% in the first seven months of 2019, while
refined zinc production climbed 3.3% and crude steel output was
down 1.2%, Statistics Committee data showed on Wednesday.
    London-listed copper miner KAZ Minerals and
Glencore's Kazzinc account for a large part of
Kazakhstan's metals production. ArcelorMittal owns the
country's only major steel mill in Temirtau.
    The Statistics Committee provided the following data on
Kazakhstan's non-ferrous, steel and precious metals output in
its latest monthly bulletin:
