TABLE-Kazakhstan H1 copper, zinc output up; steel down

    ALMATY, July 16 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan's refined copper
output rose 13.8% in the first half of 2019, while refined zinc
production climbed 3.0% and crude steel output was down 2.4%,

Kazakhstan's metals production. ArcelorMittal owns the
country's only major steel mill in Temirtau.

Kazakhstan's non-ferrous, steel and precious metals output in
its latest monthly bulletin:
