TABLE-Kazakhstan's Jan-April copper, zinc output falls

    ALMATY, May 15 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan's January-April
refined copper output fell 0.6 percent year-on-year and refined
zinc production dropped 7.8 percent, while crude steel output
rose 3.4 percent, Statistics Committee data showed on Wednesday.

Kazakhstan's metals production.

mill in Temirtau.

Kazakhstan's non-ferrous, steel and precious metals output in
