TABLE-Kazakhstan Jan-Oct copper output up; steel, zinc down

    ALMATY, Nov 19 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan's output of refined
copper rose 9.5% in the first ten months of 2019, while crude
steel production was down 2.3% and refined zinc output fell
0.6%, 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.
    The Statistics Committee provided the following data on
Kazakhstan's non-ferrous, steel and precious metals output in
its latest monthly bulletin:
