BEIJING, April 24 (Reuters) - London copper traded within a tight range on Wednesday, as a recent rally in prices dampened consumption in top consumer China, although supply disruptions primarily caused by Cobre Panama mine closure continued to lend some support.

Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange was up 0.1% at $9,714 per metric ton, as of 0135 GMT, after a two-day decline.

The most-traded June copper contract on the Shanghai Futures Exchange slid 0.5% to 78,460 yuan ($10,832.08) per ton.

Cobre Panama, one of the world's largest open-pit copper mines, was forced to shut in December, reversing global supply of copper concentrate to a supply deficit this year.

Copper prices have rallied so far this year with support from mine closures and upbeat Chinese demand outlook.

LME copper hit a two-year high on Friday.

Fabricators of copper tubes and wires in China are struggling to pass on higher costs to their customers, ANZ analysts said, citing comments from an industry conference in Hangzhou.

The London Metal Exchange moved on Tuesday to stop traders from taking Russian aluminium from its approved warehouses and returning it at a later date to profit from rule changes to comply with new sanctions.
