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

    ALMATY, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan's output of refined
copper rose 11% in the first nine months of 2019, while refined
zinc and crude steel output were down 0.9% each, 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:
