TABLE-Kazakhstan boosts Jan-Feb copper output by 2.6 pct

 ALMATY, March 15 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan produced
56,199 
tonnes of refined copper in the first two months of this year, 
up 2.6 percent year-on-year, state statistics data showed.	
 Production of alumina, bauxite, lead and crude steel also 
increased in year-on-year terms, while refined zinc output was 
flat.	
 London-listed miners Kazakhmys and ENRC , as
well as Glencore-controlled Kazzinc, account for a 
large part of Kazakhstan's metals output. ArcelorMittal 
  owns the country's only major steel plant.	
 The State Statistics Agency provided the following data for 
Kazakhstan's non-ferrous, steel and precious metals output in 
its latest monthly bulletin:
