TABLE-Kazakhstan's Jan-July copper output falls, steel, zinc up

    ALMATY, Aug 17 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan's January-July refined
copper output fell 3.5 percent year-on-year while refined zinc
production rose 1.5 percent and crude steel output inched up 0.2
percent, Statistics Committee data showed on Friday.
    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:
