TABLE-Kazakhstan Jan-Nov copper, steel output up, zinc down

    ALMATY, Dec 19 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan's output of refined
copper rose 8.1% in the first 11 months of 2019, while crude
steel production was up 3.8% and refined zinc output slipped
0.1%, Statistics Committee data showed on Tuesday.
    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:
