TABLE-Kazakh Jan-Apr copper, zinc output down

 ALMATY, May 16 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan's refined copper
and 
zinc production edged down marginally in the first four months 
of the year, state statistics data released on Monday showed.	
 Refined copper production in January-April 2011 was 109,835 
tonnes, down 1.1 percent year-on-year, and refined zinc output 
totalled 104,645 tonnes, a decline of 0.2 percent versus the 
same period of 2010.	
 Production of alumina rose 3.1 percent in the first four 
months of the year and bauxite production was up 2.3 percent. 
Refined lead and crude steel production both increased by more 
than 25 percent in the same comparison.	
 London-listed miners Kazakhmys and ENRC , as
well as Glencore-controlled Kazzinc, account for a 
large part of Kazakhstan's metals output. ArcelorMittal 
  owns the country's only major steel plant.	
 The State Statistics Agency provided the following data for 
Kazakhstan's non-ferrous, steel and precious metals output in 
its latest monthly bulletin:
