TABLE-Kazakhstan's Jan-April copper output up; zinc, steel down

    ALMATY, May 21 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan's refined copper
output rose 8.8 percent in the first four months of 2019
year-on-year, while refined zinc production fell 1.5 percent and
crude steel output fell 0.2 percent, 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 plant partly suspended operations late
last year after a fire damaged gas pipelines.
    The Statistics Committee provided the following data on
Kazakhstan's non-ferrous, steel and precious metals output in
its latest monthly bulletin:
