TABLE-Kazakhstan Jan-May copper output up; zinc and steel down

    ALMATY, June 17 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan's refined copper
output rose 11.2% year on year in the first five months of 2019,
while refined zinc production fell 0.9% and crude steel output
was down 0.2%, Statistics Committee data showed on Monday.
    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:
