ALMATY, March 15 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan produced56,199  tonnes of refined copper in the first two months of this year,
up 2.6 percent year-on-year, state statistics data showed. 

Production of alumina, bauxite, lead and crude steel also  increased in year-on-year terms, while refined zinc output was  flat. 

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:
