TABLE-Kazakh H1 copper output declines, zinc up

ALMATY, July 15 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan's refined copper 
output declined by 5.5 percent year-on-year in the first six 
months of 2011, while zinc production edged up, data released on
Friday by the State Statistics Agency showed.     
    Refined copper production in January-June 2011 was 166,330 
tonnes. Refined zinc output totalled 158,373 tonnes, or 0.1 
percent more than in the same period of 2010.     
    Production of alumina rose 2.1 percent in the first six 
months of the year and bauxite production was up 1.6 percent. 
Refined lead production increased by 17.3 percent and crude 
steel output by 23.3 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.
