TABLE-Kazakhstan Jan-Feb copper, steel, zinc output up

    ALMATY, March 17 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan's output of refined
copper rose 8.4% year on year in January-February, while crude
steel production was up 34.3% and refined zinc output climbed
3.6%, 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, where an accident almost halted output in
late 2018-early 2019.
    The Statistics Committee provided the following data on
Kazakhstan's non-ferrous, steel and precious metals output in
its latest monthly bulletin:
